NLMK’s short film takes grand prix at Metal-Vision’2014
The short film Made of Steel, commissioned by NLMK Group for the 80th anniversary of the Novolipetsk plant received the grand prix at Metal-Vision’2014, the 11th annual competition for best video in the Russian and CIS steelmaking industry. The film also won the prizes for best director and best commentary. The competition was held as part of the autumn Metals Week in Moscow.

Made of Steel is a collaborative effort of NLMK’s press-service and the World View (Kartina Mira) film studio in Novosibirsk. The film describes the history and achievements of the plant as recounted by NLMK veterans. Distinguished plant personnel share their memories about their everyday work; how it was created and developed; comparing Soviet and modern production; describing how new technologies were mastered and what role the plant played and still plays in their lives.

The film premiered in July 2014 in Lipetsk during celebrations for the 80th anniversary of the Novolipetsk plant.

A total of 16 corporate films and videos were submitted to the Metal-Vision’2014 competition held as part of the annual industry Metal-Expo exhibition.

The Metal-Vision competition for best steelmaking video has been held since 2004 and is one of the main communications events of the Metal-Expo exhibition. The goal of the competition is to popularize and promote the steel industry, and to drive corporate culture and the efficiency of corporate communication.

In 2013, a film about NLMK Kaluga (part of NLMK Group Long Products Division) won the Best Graphics category at the annual Metal-Vision’2013 competition.
