By your information film business in Georgia began in 1923,I have no idea from who gave you such information, because in reality Georgian film production began at nearly the same time as European cinema. As far back in 1910-11 cameramen Alexander Dighmelov (Diugmelashvili) made such chronicles as: The first Aero Flight of Vasiliev, Utochkin and Qeburia, Spring Horse Races in Tbilisi, Tbilisi Botanical Garden, Georgian Wrestling and more.
In 1912, Georgian cameraman Vasil Amashukeli made a full length documentary film The Journey of Akaki Tsereteli in Racha-Lechkhumi about Georgian poet Akaki Tsereteli’s historic journey to the country’s western regions. Unfortunately, such an important fact from the history of cinema, even nowadays, is totally unknown for the film community. I tried to found mentioning about this film in professional literature and found only one note in Historical Dictionary of Russian and Soviet Cinema by Peter Rollberg, 2009, Scarecrow Press, p. XXiV
You don’t even mention Alexander Tsutsunava - great film director who shot first full-range feature film Kristine in 1916.
Also Arsena Jorjiashvili' made by Ivane Perestiani in 1921.
