Pic industry to get shot in arm

A new consortium of producers and theater owners aims to revive Indonesia’s ailing film industry. They intend to produce at least 10 films between now and next March, each costing an average of $125,000.

The costs will be split equally between the consortium’s five producers and 12 exhibs, according to Johan Tjasmadi, who was appointed head of the National Advisory Film Board formed in July. The board, the successor to the National Film Council, was set up by the government with the mandate to revive film production. The NFC was criticized for poor choice of projects.
