Russian Film Studio Now Offering Movies Online

19. May 2010 by Christy 0 Comments

In an effort to combat piracy and distribute their films to a wider audience, Russia’s oldest movie studio, Mosfilm, is now offering over one hundred Russian movies online. The studio’s new website, Mosfilm Cinema, currently has over one hundred movies, all of which are subtitled in English and other languages.

"Today's viewer needs a quality product and has no time to surf the Internet in search of portals where he can watch a film comfortably,” said Vladimir Shaidakov, Director of Mosfilm Cinema. “So, when faced with a choice between ‘Mosfilm presents…’ and ‘Slob and Sons present…’ he will opt for the former."

Currently, the website is only showing one movie per day. However, by summer operators plan to stream movies day and night as well as add more films to the site’s database. Viewers will be able to watch scheduled movies for free, view them online any time for 25 rubles or less than a dollar, or download a film for 65 rubles or a little over two dollars. They ultimately hope to offer films produced by other Russian studios as well.    

This week, movie buffs can view Mosfilm screen versions of popular Shakespeare plays for free. Check it out!
