Since January 1st 2011, movies, including animation and documentaries, will be shown in Georgian cinemas in original language, in accordance with official decree. Yet translation into Georgian and showing movies with subtitles will be obligatory.


The draft package of amendments to the law On Support for National Cinematography has been considered at today's sitting of the parliamentary Committee for Education, Science and Culture issues. It was presented by Irakli Gorduladze, the President's deputy Parliamentary Secretary.

Together with this bill the code of administrative violations will also be amended. Violation of the rules of showing movies in cinema theatres will ensue GEL 1500 [appr. USD 898] of fine for the first time; GEL 3000 [appr. USD 1797] - for the second; GEL 10 000 [appr. USD 5988] and more - for the third and further.

MPs supported the bill and mentioned its adoption would favour protection of Georgian language.
