Om Puri pitches for Govt support to promote non-feature films


New Delhi: November 21,2012

Noted Film Actor Shri Om Puri today inaugurated Indian Panorama section here at the ongoing 43rd International Film Festival of India (IFFI-2012). The section has 20 feature and 19 non feature films. Director Shivendra Singh Dungarpur`s "Celluloid Man" based on Indian archivist P K Nair`s life and work opened the non-feature film section, while Assamese film Baandhon is the opening film in the feature film category. Directed by veteran filmmaker Jahnu Barua, Baandhon is a human statement against terror on behalf of the common men of the entire world.

Shri Puri called for government help and support to promote non-feature films. He said, Indian cinema is not only about Bollywood as there are meaningful films made in different languages and regions but they don`t find distributors and so are killed. He wanted the Government to coordinate with Doordarshan to screen these films.

Secretary of Ministry of information and broadcasting Shri Uday Kumar Varma assured to work out a mechanism to showcase these films on the public broadcaster like Doordarshan.
