Establishing a Film Commission, as well as strengthening legislation and other infrastructure in the field of film industry, will give Montenegro a new chance to develop, promote and valorize our undisputed potentials, Prime Minister of Duško Marković said at a meeting with the famous Italian actor Gabriel Garko.

"We want to improve the film industry, to enrich Montenegro with film content. Therefore, it is important to us that, through your membership in the Film Commission, experience and image, you help us achieve these goals," Prime Minister Marković said and added that he hoped to intensify cooperation with the Italian film sector.

The Prime Minister considered the provision of long-term sources for financing the cinematography particularly important. He recalled that for the first time in the history of our cinematography, new Montenegrin films were part of the official selections of world festivals in Montreal, Cannes and Venice, and our young directors were granted with significant international accolades. 

Garko thanked for the confidence and the opportunity to contribute to the development of Montenegrin cinematography. He pointed out that Montenegro, because of its natural beauty and the overwhelming proximity of the mountains to the sea is interesting to everyone in the cinematography.

The meeting was also attended by Minister of Culture Aleksandar Bogdanović, who presented projects through which the Government wants to encourage producers and co-producers to come to Montenegro and invest in this sector in Montenegro.

Garko is paying working visit to Montenegro, during which he will be presented with our country's capacities in the film industry, potential for foreign filming and incentive measures for foreign producers.
