Regarding the proposed ‘Audio Visual Co-production Agreement’ between the two countries, Soni told the Polish Minister that the due process of Inter Ministerial consultations would be completed shortly.


Both Ministers discussed the possibility of exchange programme between the National Film Schools at Lodz, Poland and the Film and Television Institute of India at Pune and the Satyajit Ray Film and TV Institute in Kolkata. The latter has indicated that it would be interested in entering into an agreement with National Film Schools, Lodz, Poland. The agreement would focus on ‘Student Exchange Programmes’ and ‘Faculty Exchange Programmes’.
