Nepal’s Film Development Board provides Rs 700 Thousand for releasing films


By Sushma Tamanag, KATHMANDU:- Cinema halls closed due to the Corona epidemic are reopening on October 7th, 2021. Even though the district administration office, including Kathmandu, gave permission to operate the cinema hall by adopting health security last month, the hall could not be opened due to lack of new film for screening. Preparations have been made to open a cinema hall by screening a Hollywood film from Ghatsthapana.

After the Nepal Film Association decided to open the hall from Ghatsthapana, the Film Development Board held a press conference on Tuesday and announced a relief package for the film to be released immediately. The Film Development Board is going to provide Rs 700,000 for the film to be released within three months of its opening.

Speaking on the occasion, Board Chairman Dayaram Dahal said, “All the support we are going to provide for the immediate release of Nepali films is from the internal resources of the board.” The board is run by the fee received for showing foreign films. Despite this, the board has been providing all possible assistance from internal sources to keep the film sector afloat. ‘

Chairman Dahal informed that the Board has also requested the Ministry of Information and Communication to assist in the production of the film and this request has been sent to the Ministry of Finance by the Planning Branch of the Ministry under the title of Relief Package. Stating that the issue of project loan has also moved forward, he said that the board has provided ‘project insurance’ of up to Rs 1.5 lakh for the film to be shot.

He is confident that the ‘relief package’ included in the coalition government’s policies and programs will address some of the demands for the distribution of damage to the film industry caused by Corona. Stating that the board is also serious about securing the investment of big films and screening them, Dahal urged all to unite to make the film sector run smoothly.
