Odessa Film Studio (Ukrainian: Одеська кіностудія художніх фільмів) is a Ukrainian film studio in Odessa. It is partially owned by a government and supervised by the Department of State property fund of Ukraine together with the Ministry of Culture. Together with Dovzhenko Film Studios they are the only state-owned and major film producers in the country. The studio is located at Frantsuzky bulvar 33 (33 French Boulevard), Odessa, Ukraine. In a close vicinity to it is located a smaller film studio House of Mask.



It was founded in 1919 as a film section of the Red Army's 41st Division on the basis of nationalized private studios.


The studio is located in the downtown right near the shore of Black Sea covering some 7 hectares (17 acres) and consisting of three pavilions of 600 square metres (6,500 sq ft), 432 square metres (4,650 sq ft), and 240 square metres (2,600 sq ft). Inside the studio's building is located another film studio, Vira Kholodna Film Studio and the Odessa Film School.
