Activities of NRI Film Producers Association kick starts at Pravasi Bharatiya Divas

MUMBAI: Non Resident Indian Producers Association (NRIPA) on Wednesday kick started its journey in making films at the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas conference in Kochi.

All this was at the behest of renowned filmmaker and president of NRIPA Sohan Roy who gained international acceptance and recognition by his film DAM 999. NRIPA has been formed with an aim to be the most useful and efficient association in the film industry by promoting new generation film makers and nurturing a fresh culture within the industry.

Talking at the launch, Roy said, "As a producer of my first project, I have learnt that making films in India provides a big heap of opportunity for any producer to make money but I also learnt the hard fact that the most first timers don‘t make it into the profit zone purely because of their ignorance.

You will also be surprised to know the reality that the largest film producing nation in the world has the least presence in international film circuits. Indian films rarely make attempts to make their presence felt at the 40 internationally recognized film marketing zones. This is purely because of the ignorance about the opportunities existing outside. With NRIPA I would like to obliterate this ignorance by giving my fellow film makers the right guidance."

NRIPA has launched with the major objective of bringing enthusiastic potential NRI producers to invest in the brand called ‘Film India‘ and to ensure profitable returns to the investment.

Saint Dracula 3D the world‘s first 3D Dracula movie is the first project under NRIPA. It has already made it into the Oscar selections in different categories this year with the help of NRIPA.
