The total amount of financial assistance was about 84 million rubles.
In the capital, animation companies have been identified that will receive grants from the Moscow Government to create new audiovisual content and stimulate economic growth. This was announced by Natalya Sergunina, Deputy Mayor of Moscow.
“Support has been approved for 14 studios. In total, they will be allocated about 84 million rubles. Grants can be used to purchase equipment and specialized software or to pay employees, ”she said.
Studios that are engaged in the production of animated audiovisual products and are located in registry of animation organizations Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation or in Register of the Animated Film Association…
To receive support, the studio needs to increase its film production revenue by three times the size of the future grant.
This year, Moscow creators of non-commercial author’s animation will also be able to apply for one more grant. To get it, you need to win a prize at a well-known Russian or international festival of author’s animation. Acceptance of applications is planned to open in November.
Also, studios can take advantage of business support measures already in place in the city (for example, to compensate for part of the costs of adapting products during export). The targeted subsidy allows you to reimburse the cost of literary translation, adaptation of text to video, creating an additional sound track, producing subtitles, renting premises and the equipment necessary for this.
In addition, Moscow animation companies can apply for a grant for exporters, which is provided to small and medium-sized businesses in the presence of an export contract in the amount of at least six million rubles.
