India, China to promote cooperation in film sector

India and China also agreed that the Chinese Films Co-production Commission would interact more closely with the I&B Ministry.

India and China Thursday agreed that the Joint Working Group established to promote cooperation in the film sector will meet on the sidelines of International Film Festival of India 2014 in Goa.

The proposed meeting will involve stakeholders from both countries in an attempt to enhance cooperation in the film sector with specific proposals and projects. This decision was taken at a meeting between I&B Minister Prakash Javadekar and Cai Fuchao, Minister for State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television (SAPPRFT), here on Thursday.

Both ministers agreed that the proposed meeting would be an important step towards identifying key deliverables and a common roadmap to strengthen bilateral cooperation in areas related to films and audio-visual production. Both also agreed to work within an institutional time-frame in the light of the audio visual co-production agreement signed on Thursday during Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to India.

India and China discussed the ambit of the co-production agreement, which covered the domain of feature films, documentaries, cine films and animations. Both reiterated the fact that it was an important step as a co-production film would be entitled to all benefits accorded to national films in both countries.
