Ak kosh

Autonomous artistic association (AAA) «Ak kosh» is a fundamental project created for searching new forms of ethnic and national film industry development.

This artistic project independent from any national, confessional and political beliefs is aimed to unite men of talent, such as producers, directors, script-writers, cameramen and artists from all over the world, whose main goal is to express their ideas by means of film industry.

The main purpose of «Ak kosh» association films is to preserve spirituality and morality as the establishment of universal human values. Our project is also aimed at the development of audience interest to good and happy-end films which would tell them about the ups and downs of people lives and establish and enhance love and faith.

Thus the name «Ak kosh» that translated from the Bashkir language as the «White bird».
