THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Member of Parliament from Thiruvananthapuram Shashi Tharoor has written to Union minister for information and broadcasting Ambika Soni asking her to reconsider the decision taken by the board of directors of the National Film Development Corporation's (NFDC) to shut down its branch office here.

He reminded Soni that in 2009, she had stopped a similar move on his behest and that the status quo had been maintained at the office.

"Nothing has changed since then and the Thiruvananthapuram branch office deserves to be retained for valid reasons, not the least that it is a financial burden on the NFDC."

The decision to close the branch he writes "is because of a demand made by the Kerala Film Development Corporation to raise the rent for its premises where the branch is located."

He adds that the branch reportedly earns an income of Rs 50 lakh per annum and its current administrative expenses, including salary,rent, etc.does not exceed Rs 20 lakh.

The state government has expressed its willingness to discuss an increase in rent.

"The Malayalam film industry is in no way inferior to its counterparts in terms of quality and quantity of output...the functions performed by the NFDC's branch in Thiruvananthapuram, such as editing, sub-titling, promotion etc., are important in the context of the very raison d'etre of the NFDC's existence," Tharoor says in a letter dated
February 12.

- It's nice to hear that someone's taking action about such issues. If the KFDC want to make more money they should improve their theaters and move ahead with the development plans at Chitranjali rather than hike the rent on a few hundred square feet of space.

The NFDC may be antiquated but it does serve a valid content production aggregation function. I still fondly remember the "Films Division" short films that used to be screened before movies back in the 80s and 90s.

Thiruvananthapuram to turn into an entertainment hub

Quote:
Thiruvananthapuram will soon turn into an entertainment hub of the country with the Union Government according Special Economic Zone (SEZ) status to the Kerala Industrial Infrastructure Development Corporation (Kinfra) Film and Video Park (KFVP) at Kazhakkoottam. Kinfra Film and Video Park, an ISO 14001: 2004 certified company, is the first Infotainment Industrial Park in the country in a beautifully landscaped area of 75 acres of land. The Park is a fully-owned subsidiary of Kinfra, a statutory body of the Kerala Government.

With the SEZ status, the investors in the Park will be eligible for various tax and duty concessions and there will be no need to obtain a special licence for imports. They will get full exemption from Excise and Customs duties and a five-year exemption from Income Tax. Kinfra Managing Director S Ramnath said that there is also a possibility for 100-per cent foreign direct investments in the Park.

KFVP is the first Infotainment Park in the country and India’s first SEZ for animation and gaming. This SEZ has been established to promote animation/gaming industries and studios in India. The KFVP is an attempt by the government to give infrastructure support to the film industry by providing an ideal centre for screen content development. The Park offers all modern amenities for the film industry and filmmakers.

It has the potential to transform itself into a world-class entertainment production hub. Kinfra is striving to tap some major investments from entertainment conglomerates from India and abroad and convince them to set up units in Kerala.

The Park caters to the industries in the entertainment and visual media and consists of modern processing labs, digital recording studios and outdoor and indoor shooting locales and an ‘Animation Zone’ comprising built-up modules to house export-oriented animation units.

As part of the second phase of development, an International Animation School will be established on the campus. Common facilities have already been developed at the Park. They include a restaurant, commercial complex, open-air theatre and artificial lakes. The Park, which offers top-class facilities to customers, also provides a single-window clearance system.

It is a conglomeration of mutually supporting service providers in the film and video industry, sharing the advanced facilities, while, at the same time, catalysing further growth of the industry.

The movie is basically how people from different stratas of life who are trying to find their own fortune grips to the incident and how their life changes after that particular incident . Malayalam movies are just changing rapidly and is changing for good .The screenplay of this film by Murali gopi is very captivating and it manages to keep your attention till the very end .With lots of twists n turns it's like watching the final over of a ipl cricket match .Just watch it .4.5/5.
Waiting to watch....

Curtains up for CLAPS

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Claps, the first short film festival organised at the Institute of English of Kerala, was inaugurated by director Shyamaprasad here on Friday.
The filmmaker shared his views and observations on short film-making with the� budding film makers and students gathered for the fest. He said there is an amateurish touch among young short filmmakers in choosing the plot, narrative techniques and the utilisation of creative tools for filmmaking.
“The young crop doesn’t have to face much challenges in technical side with the availability of technologically advanced equipment. Youngsters, who produce excellent literary works to be in par with the works of veteran writers, lack� skills when it comes to film-making,” he said.
He added that it’s time to check the quality of content in short films while the production volume is on a rise. He also suggested that the youngsters should consider film watching a serious affair.
Sajitha Madathil, in her keynote address underscored the need for the participation of women short film-makers in the industry. Comparing the statistics of the participation of women in the previous two editions of International Documentary and Short Film Festival of Kerala, she said that a majority of� female participants in both festivals had� an upbringing outside Kerala. She stressed on the need for more women from Kerala to come up for such events.
After the inaugural session, there was the screening of seven internationally acclaimed short films. French films including Jean Painleve’s ‘Acera’(1972), ‘Night and Fog’(1955) directed by Alain Resnias, the science fiction ‘La Jetee’1962) directed by Chris Markers, Balint Kenyeres’ ‘Before Dawn’(2005), ‘Run Wrake’s ‘Rabbit’(2007), ‘Meshes of the Afternoon’(1943) by Maya Deren and Toby Mcdonald’s ‘Je T’aime John Wayne’ (2001)were also screened in this category. This was followed by a talk by Meena T Pillai on the topic ‘Malayalam Cinema: On Scripting the Malayali’.
The institute package comprising two films made by the students of the institute were showcased. ‘Ke Sera Sera’ the 26-minute short-film in 2006 directed by the then M.Phil students Aromal T and Arunkumar K V was one among them. The plot is centred around the diary notes of a girl. ‘Thoottal’, directed by Pramod, an MA English student, is an eight-minute film produced in 2011. The narrative is devised as in a problem play. The Institute has a vibrant film club ‘Institute Talkies’ functioning from 2006 onwards under the aegis of which the film festival is being organised.
The films selected from various campuses for the competition category are to be screened on Saturday. Film director T V Chandran will give away the prizes. There will be a talk by film-critic V Rajakrishnan and the screening of the award winning social documentary ‘A Pestering Journey’ directed by K R Manoj on the same day.

Tharoor gets Ambika Soni to stay NFDC Branch closure

Thiruvananthapuram: The decision to close the Thiruvanathapuram branch office of the NFDC was stayed by Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting Smt. Ambika Soni following a successful intervention by Dr. Shashi Tharoor, MP. This information was conveyed by the Office of the Union Minister, today.

A decision to wind up the Office was taken by the Board of Directors of the NFDC at its meeting held in Mumbai early this month and personnel from the Chennai Office had landed up in the city to pack the records, equipment and other office material for transport to Chennai. The immediate provocation for this decision was reported to be a demand raised by the Kerala Film Development Corporation seeking a raise in rent for its premises in the Kalabhavan Theatre Complex where the NFDC branch was located.

As soon as he received the information, Dr. Shashi Tharoor sent a strongly worded letter to Smt. Ambika Soni on 11th February, 2012 opposing the move and making valid justification for its continuance. He further reminded the Minister that he had earlier intervened successfully with her in 2009 when a similar move for shutting down the office had been initiated by NFDC’s Mumbai headquarters.

Subsequently, Dr. Tharoor spoke to Smt. Soni in New Delhi on 18th February, 2012 following which she issued orders to the NFDC to immediately freeze the move to close down the Office. She further directed that talks may be held with the State Government to resolve the rent issue
