I think no one doubts the fulfillment of this mission through cinematography, which is one of the most important branches of culture. As the Ministry of Culture, we attach importance to the formation of public-private relations, and we prioritize integration with the Turkic people and, in general, world cinematography schools. Recently, the films we created and shot together with a number of countries are already on screens. Today we will review the projects presented by the production companies of Azerbaijan, Turkey, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, and other countries. The creation of this platform will serve the integration of the Turkic world in the field of cinematography".
