The fee for rental of foreign films can be increased 1400 times.
The Ministry of culture discussed the idea to increase the amount of the stamp duty on the hire of foreign films 1,400 times.
Currently stamp duty in obtaining a distribution certificate, he said, is 3.5 thousand rubles. Officials of the Ministry of culture propose to raise it to 5 million rubles.
According to managing Director of the state cinema Fund Anton Malyshev, officials believe that this measure “will allow to clean the rental from a significant number of foreign films low quality”, increasing the number of sessions for Russian cinema.
The cost of a distribution certificate for Russian films, said a source in the Ministry of culture also plans to raise up to 5 million rubles. However, manufacturers and Russian distributors of the strips, these costs will be somehow compensated.
Official representatives of the Ministry of culture to comment on the discussion of new rates of duty for rental licenses refused.
