The first main film production and distribution organisation in the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic until 1924 was Goskino; this was succeeded by Sovkino from 1924 to 1930, and then replaced with Soyuzkino in 1930, which had jurisdiction over the entire USSR.

Subsequently, Goskino USSR was created by the decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of USSR on March 23, 1963 as the State Committee of the Council of Ministers of the USSR on Cinematography.[1] From 1965 to 1972, its name was simplified to the Committee on Cinematography of the Council of Ministers. From 1972 to 1978, the committee regained its original name. From 1978, until its dissolution in 1991, it was called the State Committee of the USSR on Cinematography.

In 1991 Goskino USSR was abolished by a statement of the State Council USSR of November 14, 1991 (№ ГС-13).[2]
