The new document provides the conditions to drum up support for cinematography, increase the quality and competitiveness of national films, the accessibility of movie screening services for the population, the transparency and investment attractiveness of the film industry, the growth of the authority and recognition of Kazakh films abroad.
In addition, the law will determine legal foundations of the operation of the State National Film Support Centre designed to be a single operator to provide public financial support for cinematography.
