Oleg Berezin Resigns as Russian Cinema Association Chair


Dear EDCF Friends and colleagues, 

Our long-time friend and valued colleague on the EDCF Board, Oleg Berezin of Neva Film, has resigned his position as Chair of the Russian Federation’s Association of Cinema Owners as a protest against Russia’s military action in Ukraine.

Oleg is well known to everyone in the global film industry, his energy, ideas and beaming smile are a familiar feature of every conference we attend, and has been instrumental in digital cinema technology growth over the years as well as supporting his country’s cinema sector. We know he will continue to do so in any other ways that he can.  

We support our respected Russian colleague and his brave decision and are proud to call Oleg our friend. 

Best wishes to Oleg

David Hancock

EDCF President
