Films Division to build cinema museum in Mumbai for Rs 1.1 bn

PANAJI: The Films Division of India (FDI) is expected to incur an expenditure of Rs 1.1 billion on the Museum of Cinema which is coming up in Mumbai.


The work for the Museum is in full swing and it is likely to be inaugurated in the Centenary year of Indian Cinema in the year 2013.


FDI Director General Kuldeep Sinha said the museum will cover all the aspects of cinema - right from the films, costumes, scripts, set designs, monographs and even film magazines


Talking about the other new initiatives of the Division, Sinha said the webcast of the films made during the last 60 years will soon be done by the Division. Online purchases of the films and documentaries can be done by next year. The Division has produced more than 8000 films during the last 60 years, and about 5000 films will be available for online purchase and download.


He also said the Division has signed a MoU with NFDC to market its documentaries. Describing the MoU as a win-win situation for both NFDC and FDI, he said NFDC has been given all the rights (films and television) to market the films all over the world on a revenue sharing basis.


Referring to a long pending demand, he said an announcement regarding the waiver of one percent rental being charged at present from the cinema owners to screen its films at the cinema halls is round the corner.


Talking about FDI’s association with IFFI, he said the four-day documentary film festival on Indian Classical dances and Gurus, ‘Dancing Feet’ will be inaugurated by Chief Minister Digambar Kamat in the presence of danseuse Sitara Devi, Pt. Birju Maharaj and other dignitaries at IFFI. Organised in collaboration with the Directorate of Film Festivals and the Entertainment Society of Goa, this unique festival will feature 22 select documentaries


Conceived as a sequel to the hugely applauded film festival on music, Moments with the Maestros held as part of the 40th IFFI, Dancing Feet offers dance lovers from India and abroad glimpses of important classical dances like the Bharatnatyam, Kuchipudi, Odissi, Kathakali, Kathak, Mohiniattam and Manipuri. Biopic on some of the dancing icons including Sitara Devi, Pandit Birju Maharaj, Yamini Karishnamurthy, Sonal Mansingh, Dr. Padma Subramaniam, Raja & Radha Reddy, Uma Sharma and Mallika Sarabhai are also being screened in the festival. All these highly decorated and celebrated artistes will also be felicitated during the festival where they shall interact with the media and the delegates.
