The number of applications for shooting movie and video projects in St. Petersburg has almost doubled over the past three years

The movie commission for coordinating filming, operating on the basis of the Institute for Cultural Programs, summed up the results of the work over the past few years.

It turned out that in 2019, the number of applications for filming approached 300, and by the end of 2021, it exceeded 560.

In 2021, applications came mainly from St. Petersburg and Russian companies (“Woland” by Mikhail Lokshin, “Karamor” by Danila Kozlovsky, “Chaliapin” by Yegor Anashkin, “December” by Klim Shipenko, etc.). There are far fewer foreign projects, but St. Petersburg can boast of cooperation with such large companies as Netflix (“Anna K” is the first Russian series commissioned by Netflix) and BBC.
