Modern sound recording studio will be created in Ukraine to record sound and dub foreign films in Ukrainian.

“We already have quite sufficient base of dubbing and subtitling for broadcasting movies on TV channels, for example “1+1”, but there is no any studio for dubbing foreign films for distribution,” Anna Chmil, director of State cinema service, told Wednesday at a press conference in Kyiv.

According to her, within the frameworks of the memorandum among Culture Ministry and film distributors on observation of the language legislation, the state promises to assist in creating technical base for dubbing foreign films. State budget for 2007 provides for ten million hryvnias for purchase of equipment, which will be located in Dovzhenko’s National cinema studio.

Chmil also informed that the biggest film distributors, such as B&H Film Distribution, will invest about ten million UAH more to create modern sound recording studio on the basis of Dovzhenko’s studio.

According to the director of State cinema service, the studio is planned to be opened by the end of the year 2007, and in future it will process up to 300 films annually, what is enough for the Ukrainian market.

At the same time, Chmil reported that she has information that some foreign companies, an American and an Italian in particular, plan to build film production studios o the territory of Ukraine.

Answering journalists’ questions, Chmil informed that in 2007 it is planned to produce 14-16 films of Ukrainian production and a few cartoons.
