A Russian film center, called Kollywood, opens to stimulate the national film industry of Russia. The film center is set to mirror Los Angeles' world famous Hollywood.

According to a Russian cinema critic, Viktor Matizen, Kollywood has the potential to become very successful for the Russian film industry. However, he considers it a precondition for success that  government officials and prejudiced cinematographers will not meddle with the project.

The Kollywood project will cost up to 100 million Rubles. The organizers of the project have raised the money through federal investment programs and non-commercial funds.
