Nestled in the Caucasus with a coast along the eastern shores of the Black Sea, Georgia is a country of 4.5 million people and a great cinema tradition. In recent years Georgian films enjoyed a renaissance with films like Tangerines, by Zaza Urushadze, nominated for Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, and In Bloom, by Nana Ekvtimishvili and Simon Gross, which won 29 awards and 7 nominations. An article in Film New Europe (FNE) provides interesting details about the film production, cash rebates, and the return of classic Georgian films which were archived in Russia.
