Kh.Battulga President of Mongolia: “I am supporting the project because the film industry is always adopting the latest advancements in information technology and the project would, therefore, create opportunities for Mongolian IT experts and computer graphic artists to engage in film production by taking orders from abroad. I am confident that the project would provide opportunities of actual experience for international filmmakers who wish to make films about the rich history and culture of Mongolia, a nation that has a formidable presence in the human history”.

It will be the first modern standard filmmaking complex of the country, with nine studios and all production departments that will cover 50 hectares of area in Maidar city.
