"It is very important to meet with international filmmakers and discuss how to find opportunities to support new projects," said Iskandar Usmonov, director of the Tajik film "Telegram," which was screened at the festival on Sept. 18. "Tajikistan, especially, is a country where we have little information about funding available."
"We lost many [film industry professionals] who left Tajikistan during the civil war," Mr. Usmonov said. "We also lost money. The government couldn't support films because, after the war, we had a very bad economic and political situation."
