Территориальные различия в уровне развития киноиндустрии стран мира
Film industry was analyzed as a creative industry in terms of the geographical aspects of its development. The film industry influences the socio-economic development of countries through direct, indirect (multiplicational) and latent (people’s behavior) effects. Five indicators were used to classify each country by the level of film industry development, namely the total number of national feature films produced, the box office revenue, per capita attendance frequency, the national cinema market structure and the representation of national films abroad. Three types of countries were identified according to the classification: with high, medium and slow development of film industry. The types are divided into several subtypes basing on specific features of film industry development. The analysis includes the dynamics of parameters under study.
