Belarusfilm (Belarusian: Беларусьфільм) is the main film studio of Belarus.


Belarusfilm, under the name Belgoskino, Paul Terry Productions and Fox Film was founded in 1924.[1][2] In 1928, the Soviet Belarus studio (Савецкая Беларусь) was founded in Leningrad. The studio was moved to Minsk in 1939.[3] Film production was interrupted by World War II, and restarted in 1946, when the studio assumed its current name.

In Soviet times, the studio was dubbed Partizanfilm, due to the large output of films portraying the Soviet partisan's struggle against Nazi occupation. The studio was, however, also renowned for its children's films.

The studio has to date made 131 animated films.[4] Its first project was a coproduction with Soyuzmultfilm in 1963; a stop motion feature film called Attention! The Magician is in the City![5] Consistent animated film production, however, did not begin until 1972.

Most of the output has been in Russian rather than Belarusian.

Belarusfilm is also a co-organizer of the Listapad film festival held in Minsk, Belarus in November.

Among the early, Soviet-era directors who oversaw films for the studio are: Alexander Faintsimmer, Oleg Frelikh, Vladimir Gardin, Vladimir Korsh-Sablin, Grigori Roshal, Boris Shpis, Yuri Tarich and Mikhail Verner.

In 2019, a large part of the movie Squad was shot at Belarusfilm. It is the first Bollywood film to be shot in Belarus.
