Roskino or Federal Agency on Culture and Cinematography (Федеральное агентство по культуре и кинематографии (Роскино) was a federal establishment in the Russian Federation.

It was abolished by President on May 12, 2008, with its functions handed over to the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation.[1]

On September 30, 1992, the State Committee of Russian Federation for Cinematography was created, which was called "Roskomkino" (Роскомкино). By a decree of August 14, 1996 it was made from "State Committee" into the "Committee" which is its current name (Roskino, Russian: Роскино). It was modeled on the Soviet goskino.
