India wants Indo-Chinese pact on co-production and export of movies to China

NEW DELHI: The Government today proposed that the National Film Development and its Chinese counterpart should explore the possibilities of a memorandum of understanding for joint production and distribution of films between the two countries.

Information and Broadcasting Secretary Sunil Arora stated this in a meeting with Fuzhou People?s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries President Yang Yue and his delegation members.

The meeting was held here to discuss cooperation between the two countries in areas pertaining to co-production of movies and import of more Indian films to China. Joint Secretary (Films) K Sanjay Murthy and Senior Officers from the Ministry were also present during the meeting.

Yue agreed to examine the suggestion. He invited Indian representatives to visit Fuzhou for the 3rd Silk Road International Film Festival.

India had earlier participated as a focus country in the 2nd Silk Road International Film Festival in September last year and a delegation from the Ministry and the Directorate of Film Festivals attended the festival.

India and China had earlier signed an Audio-Visual Co-production Agreement in September 2014.

In the recent past, India had permitted filming of three Chinese films in the country namely: ?Lost in India?, ?Kung Fu Yoga? and ?Xuan Zang?. The film ?Xuan Zang? was a co-production between the Chinese Film Company Ltd. and Eros (India) International. The movie ?Kung Fu Yoga? is currently being filmed in India.
