It’s a major Russian film company that has been working in the domestic and international market for over 25 years, and since 2019 has become the part of NMG Studio. We are introducing new talents and establish successful creative collaborations with respected filmmakers. While making its projects Art Pictures Studio co-operates with the leading international and Russian companies and TV channels such as Walt Disney, Studios Sony Pictures Releasing, 20th Century Fox, Universal Pictures, IMAX, VGTRK, STS, Channel One, etc.

Art Pictures Studio's new movie — sci-fi thriller SPUTNIK (by Egor Abramenko) is also becoming a huge hit. The project was viewed more than 1 million times after just one month of online-streaming in Russia and became number 1 on American iTunes (the "Horror" category) right after its USA release. "Sputnik's" Rotten Tomatoes Score is almost 90% — it is the first time when a Russian project is rated this high. Right now APS is also developing its first documentary BATTLE focusing on a figure of Academy Award-winning director Sergei Bondarchuk. Helming the project are journalists Anton Jelnov and Denis Kataev with Ilya Belov as a director. The company also plans soon to release a romantic comedy RUSSIAN SOUTH (Anton Fedotov) made in production with Vodorod Studio and STS channel.
