IFFI 2012: Om Puri says Indian cinema is not just Bollywood

OM PURI
 
While inaugurating the Indian Panorama section here at the 43rd International Film Festival of India (IFFI-2012), Om Puri, the well-known Indian actor who has worked in Bollywood as well as the Indian art house films with equal aplomb, pitched passionately for the government support to non-feature and non-Bollywood films. He said, Indian cinema is not only about Bollywood as there are meaningful films made in different languages and regions but they don't find distributors and thus none gets to know about them. He suggested that the Government should coordinate with Doordarshan to screen such films. The Secretary of Ministry of Information and Broadcasting Uday Kumar Varma assured him that he would look into the matter and work out a mechanism to showcase these films on Doordarshan.

Indian Panorama has 20 feature and 19 non-feature films. Director Shivendra Singh Dungarpur's CELLULOID MAN based on Indian archivist P K Nair's life and work opened the non-feature film section, while Assamese film BAANDHON is the opening film in the feature film category. Directed by the veteran filmmaker Jahnu Barua, it is a human statement against terror on behalf of the common men of the entire world.
