Iranian delegation visits Soyuzmultfilm & Kino Artis Studios

A delegation of Iranian animation industry visited the Soyuzmoltfilm and Kino Artis Studios as part of their effort to establish commercial relations with prospective international partners. Soyuzmultfilm executives gave a tour of the facilities and exhibited their capabilities for producing animated content in different genres. This studio is capable of producing animations ranging from stop motion to 2D and 3D, however, it is also experiencing a shortage of animators in certain genres. The stop motion is where this lack of a skilled workforce is most tangible, which is currently severely understaffed. During the talks, Iranian delegation pitched samples and trailers from their latest productions which were well received and lead to plans for further technical negotiations in the future. The second stop for the Iranian delegation was the Kino Artis Studio which mostly focuses on 2D & 3D animated content. After a full tour of facilities, a joint meeting was held during which Kino Artis executives expressed their optimism for starting collaborations and joint-production projects with their Iranian counterparts.
