J&K Film Policy to create employment opportunities for local talent in filmmaking
Jammu: The UT Government on Friday said that it was in the process of finalizing the J&K Film Policy aimed at promoting film tourism in Jammu and Kashmir.
According to the communique issued by DIPR-JK, the Policy will showcase the splendid locales of J&K besides assisting the filmmakers who intend to shoot their films here to scout for locations, local talent and facilities, besides obtaining the required clearances.
“The Policy lays thrust on harnessing the local talent in the field of movie-making in J&K and creation of employment opportunities for the youth in the field. For this, a complete database of the available local talent in J&K is being prepared for hosting on the website for enabling the filmmakers interested in shooting their film in the UT to utilize their services. Since every film production is the meeting place for creative artists in the field of dance, film fashion, acting, choreography and advertisement, it will open new avenues of employment for the youth of J&K. Besides, there is also a requirement of people adept in cinematic tools like camera, editing, sound recording, set designing, lighting etc,” reads the communique.
To register themselves, the local talent of J&K working in the field of movie-making can fill in their details by or before 10, July 2021, by going on the link https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfd1I2O6iJ6k5QCE1e3Ga4MegyWM7Yxl3Oss43fdkF_9kr29w/viewform
