The Georgian Film Cluster unites 40 leading companies and professionals in the audio-visual industry in Georgia.

Georgia has a long history and rich tradition in film production and post-production. Less than a year after the first commercial public screening of a cinematographic film of Lumiere brothers occurred in Paris on December 28, 1895, Tbilisi hosted its first public screening on November 16, 1896. The Georgian film industry enjoyed robust growth and active film production throughout the majority of the 20th century, and numerous Georgian filmmakers were awarded prizes in international competitions.
