FILM PUBL.- Open Society Institutes Central Asian DVD Film Collection

The Arts and Culture Network Program of the Open Society Institute
(OSI) has prepared a DVD collection of Central Asian cinema. The
collection is made up of two sets of films, feature and documentary.
Both sets contain 10 films that are emblematic of each Central Asian
Republic. In each set there are 5 films made during the Soviet times,
and 5 films made since their independence.

The countries represented in the collection are Kazakhstan,
Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. OSI commissioned
a Central Asian Cinema Expert, Gulnara Abikeyeva to bring together
this DVD collection.

We are offering the Central Asian DVD Collection free of charge to
parties who are interested in cinema and Central Asia and also
committed to inform and educate interested public along these lines.

OSI kindly requests that you show these films to an audience without
any admission fee and, if possible, provide a platform for discussion
relating to the films. Where applicable and possible, we would like
these films to be accessible to individuals with a relevant research
or educational agenda.

Due to the limited number of DVD sets, we ask you to contact us with a
brief description of your organization and your proposed use of the
DVD sets. Our primary targets are North American and European film
associations/festivals/archives, cultural centers, libraries,
universities. Please note that OSI will not distribute the DVD
collection to individuals for personal use.

Each film is subtitled in both Russian and English. For more
information regarding the collection, you may visit our website,

Please contact us at acnp@osi.hu before September 15th if you are
interested in the Central Asian DVD collection.
