    The badge was awarded for outstanding contribution to the field. Like many dictators after them, both Lenin and Stalin highly valued cinematography for its propaganda value. Lenin went as far as calling it "the most important of all arts". Under Stalin, huge funds poured into movie production. Top film directors and actors were lavishly rewarded monetarily and decorated with orders and medals.
