ISLAMABAD: To revive Pakistani film and cinema industry, there is need for an organization to bridge up Pakistani film industry with international film industries through participation in exchange workshops programmes and organizing festivals to boost film culture in Pakistan, said renowned film director and writer Syed Noor.
Talking to media, he said we have to adopt international film making techniques, create a fund for seniors in the industry having talent and professional capability.
He stressed for creating environment and ambiance in the cinemas along with the good film as today’s Cinemas are equipped with plush seats, modern technology which can pull out the audience but there is also a class who can not afford an expensive ticket of Rs 500/-.
Syed Noor said, it is a good sign that film making has been taught as a subject in National College of Arts (NCA), Punjab University, Lahore University, Beaconhouse National University (BNU), Superior University, but it could only be learned by practicing it for which all institutions have to adopt practical methodologies with collaboration of seniors of industry.
He said we need to promote and boost Pakistani film industry rather than Lollywood and Kolachiwood etc.
Pakistani film industry is going well and improving day by day, but even then we have to join our hands collectively, he added.
Syed Noor appreciated the initiative taken by Information Services Academy (ISA) to organize the workshop in this regard and suggested for holding such workshops every month to change the perception and clear the vision that how difficult is the survival of film industry when audience is pulled out only for Indian movies.
The 2018 Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) annual conference is scheduled for April 8 to 11 in Boao, Hainan Province. The forum will be themed "An Open and Innovative Asia for a World of Greater Prosperity."
