On February 6, an agreement on cooperation was signed between the Tourist Association of Russian Regions (TARR) and the Tsar Pictures Film Studio.
According to the document, TARR becomes a partner of the film company in the framework of the project to produce a Russian-Hollywood feature film with a budget of at least $ 10 million.
The action of the film takes place in one of the Russian regions, opening it to the viewer throughout the entire film. Unique sights, local charm, beauty of the inhabitants, hospitality, history, novelties and achievements, everything that one can be proud of will be demonstrated in the film for 570 million viewers from more than 50 countries.
The main objective is to create the feeling that the region is accessible, open and nearby.
The film will feature Hollywood and Russian actors, whose arrival in the region is already considered a huge event.
An additional bonus for the place of shooting will be a series of marketing events - press conferences, charitable receptions and special premieres, which are an integral part of film production and traditionally accompanying events of this kind.
The organizers especially emphasize that the film will be funded from extrabudgetary sources.
Which region is lucky enough to become a location for filming has not been determined yet. However, it is known that this is not the only joint venture between the TARR and the Tsar Pictures. The companies plan long-term cooperation on the basis of new breakthrough approaches in the promotion of the tourist potential and hospitality of the Russian regions - members of the TARR.
