Org is RX for India docs

Over 50 prod'n companies join to create Forum

NEW DELHI — Indian documentary filmmakers are launching a nonprofit trade org to promote commercial interests of Indian docu producers.

More than 50 production companies will gather Wednesday here to form the Indian Documentary Forum.

Members include production houses UTV, Public Service Broadcasting Trust, Riverbank Studios and Miditech, who have been making films for domestic and international clients. Reps are electing an organization head and charting out the work to be done by the new org.

Filmmaker Niret Alva told Daily Variety the org “could work to promote the Indian documentary companies locally, regionally and globally.”

The forum will ensure participation at international trade shows such as MipDoc and NATPE, as well as docu festivals, and promote India as a post-production center. On the domestic front, the forum would interact with the government on issues of funding, marketing and service taxes.
