Soviet film makers invited Americans and other Westerners to work with the Soviet Union and pledged cooperation in co-productions Tuesday during an American Film Market seminar at the Beverly Hilton. “We have mutual interests . . . (and) the desire to cooperate,” said Oleg A. Rudnev, president of the Moscow-based Sovexportfilm, which handles import and export of films in the Soviet Union. “Today there is no matter which we do not have the right to deal with. We are going to conduct any kind of (cinematography) activity necessary (including) . . . establishing joint ventures.” “Now it is possible to do anything,” said prominent Soviet director Nikita S. Mikhalkov, addressing what he called the new “Russian democracy.”
