Aiming to bring back filmmakers to J&K, lieutenant governor Manoj Sinha unveils new film policy | India News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: Aiming to revive the lost glory of the scenic Jammu and Kashmir as a top location for filmmaking, lieutenant governor Manoj Sinha unveiled the J&K Film Policy 2021 on Thursday, which marked the second anniversary of the abrogation of Article 370 and 35 (A).
The film policy, which will have an initial validity of five years, will offer single-window permission to filmmakers to shoot and produce their ventures.
It will offer a host of fiscal as well as non-fiscal incentives to both mainstream and documentary filmmakers from across the world, including those working on OTT platforms and TV.
The J&K film policy proposes to create an online single-window portal where the filmmakers can apply for all permissions. A J&K Film Development Council (JKFDC) will be set up, with its chairman as the head of the single-window cell. The JKFDC chairman will have the authority to grant/reject online applications made via the single-window portal in two-four weeks.
The portal will have a shooting location directory, listing scenic spots in J&K; local talent directory with a list of local artistes and film crew members; and film production equipment directory.
Among the fiscal incentives being offered to the filmmakers are subsidies for films with patriotic and other themes shot in J&K; shooting first, second and third film; films produced by award-winning filmmakers; besides TV shows, web and OTT series and documentaries. If a filmmaker gives work opportunities to the local artists of J&K, an additional subsidy of up to Rs 50 lakh would be provided to him or her.
Among the non-fiscal incentives is permission to use airstrips and air resources for at rates to be fixed by the JKFDC.
The J&K government will also facilitate creation of infrastructure required to make films in private and joint venture modes, such as studios and processing labs until a fully active film city comes up in the UT.
Security arrangements for shoot shall be made free of cost. Permission to shoot will include police clearance and a nodal security officer from police shall facilitate the shoot in matters of security & police.
J&K government will also encourage and incentivise owners to reopen closed cinema halls in the UT and modernise the existing ones.
Besides, there will be incentives to cinema hall owners to be governed by the provisions of J&K Industrial Policy 2021.
