 दोस्तों,

उत्तराखंड राज्य को बने अभी ७ साल से अधिक हो गए है लेकिन अभी तक भी उत्तराखंड सरकार ने ना तो फ़िल्म बोर्ड ही खोला है और ना उत्तराखंड राज्य का कोई टीवी चैनल है ! उत्तराखंड के कई हिस्सों मे अभी फ़िल्म हाल ही नही है !  जिस कारण से उत्तराखंड के प्रादेशिक फ़िल्म उद्योग बहुत पिछड़ा हुवा है !

फिल्मो से माध्यम से उत्तराखंड के संगीत, पर्यटन आदि को बहुत बढावा मिल सकता है !  

आएये इस विषय पर चर्चा करे !

Policy for U’khand Film Industry is need of the hour!
Policy for U’khand Film Industry is need of the hour!



By
Jayprakash Panwar “JP”

It is an ironic situation that the Uttarakhand government is not taking the
regional film industry in a serious way. The latest agitation and hunger strike
by the artists and regional film community is an inevitable action against the
decision makers. So far, no such window exists in the state where the film
community can seek help and advice from the government. It is a dilemma for the
community where to go? Whom to ask? And, how to go ahead? The potential for the
regional film industry and associated employment is abundant. It is expected
that the annual turnover of the regional audio-video production is more than Rs
100 million in the state.

The film industry of Uttarakhand is unorganised and the time has come for it to
organise as that is the next step for inevitable growth of the sector.

In India,
today, 50% of the total revenue is based on the regional film industries, which
means the share of Bollywood is just confined to 50% and the rest is dependant
on regional films. The Uttarakhand government should not forget that there are
so many countries in the world whose population is far less then Uttarakhand
but they have an advanced film industry, film board and institutions.
Uttarakhand with its 8.5 million population provides a huge potential for
regional film and film software production, employment and development in the
the future, if the government were to develop an organised environment for the
development of local film talent. In the UK,
US and Canada,
Bollywood films are generating good revenue even with the relatively small NRI
population. The recently organised Uttarakhandi NRI events New
Jersey, America
has shown the potential our artists have. They attracted a large number of NRI
Uttarakhandis from the US, Canada, even the UK. Now, Narendra Singh Negi,
Girish Tiwari ‘Girda’, Professor Shekhar Pathak and new generation artists like
Pritam Bartwan and Dangwal are going abroad to give their cultural
presentations.

The taste of the audiences is also changing across the world and they want to
films from different regions with subtitles. The international film festivals
are also giving space to regional and local films of the world. The artists and
the film community of Uttarakhand are growing on their own way without any
support of the Uttarakhand or Central government. Uttarakhand is a progressive
state of which about 40% of the community lives outside and it is hungry to
keep in touch with the roots by any means. Films are one of the best media
which can play an intermediary binding role.

The new digital technology has given tan opportunity local artistes to transfer
the cultural knowledge into digitally produced forms like VCD and DVD with
multilingual titling. The opportunity for the regional film industry not just
confined to the region, it has a global scope. The Uttarakhand government
should not forget the potential of the audio-visual media as compared to print.
Nauchami-Narayan was just an alarm to awaken the dysfunctional system and
governance. This example does not mean film-makers will always be against the
government but it does indicate the spread and popularity, as well as the
potential of the new digital media. There are about 16,000 villages in the
state with television sets as well as VCD and DVD players. If you calculate the
number of television sets by the counting number of families, a surprisingly
large number results. Now, almost every village is electrified and there is no
other means of entertainment. The regional films and VCD album have given them
a new way of entertaining themselves. The demand for such films and videos is
increasing by the day. Whether the Uttarakhand government considers this the
reality or not, the organisation, proper legal framework and policies, strategy
for regional film development and encouragement of regional talent pool are the
need of the hour.

It is necessary, therefore, for the government to consider this matter
seriously and form a regional Film, Television, Radio and New Media Board to
facilitate the process of regional programming and production. In the first
stage, government can initiate a state level body to serve all audio-visual
media by establishing a facilitation centre or a single window system for
permission and government assistance for shooting, registration of production
firms and companies, registration of writers, directors, editors, producers,
lyricists, singers, actors and technicians. The announcement of annual awards
for the best audio-visual work and holding of regional, national and
international film festivals annually would encourage film-makers. The
screening of such films in all film theatres of the state, at least for one day
in a week, could be made mandatory. All this would not entail a huge economic
burden on the Uttarakhand government. There is also the need for a regional
bench of the Film Censor Board in the state, for the facilitation of
certification of regional films and other related production.

In my views, Uttarakhand Govt should definitely think to make a registered industry for promoting UK's films like other regional film industry.

We have thousands of beautiful tourists in UK which can be potrayed through films and our cultural will also get recognition.

Dear Mehta ji,
I convey my thanks and regards to you for raising the issue of the Film Industry in Uttarakhand and also demanding a Film Policy.
I had drafted and handed over a State Film Policy 2000 to the State Govt. but it is still lying in the dust-gathered almirah at Sachivalaya. I am confident that with the help and views of Mera Pahad members, the deaf ears of the Govt. will be able to listen the facts.
I will send you a copy of the Film Policy very soon for General information and discussion to make it more practical, viable and useful. Regards.

Sir,

Thanx for giving providing us some exclusive information.

It is shocking that the film policy drafted in 2000 is still lying in Govt files. Govt should start this project afresh and work towards making the industry and implementing the policy.

As i have mentioned earlier also, by making Industry UK's tourism, culture will get a boost. I am sure a lot of artiest will able to come forward to show skill. This will also provide opportunities of employment in the state.

There are several artiest from Uttarakhand origin who are working in other regional films / music. Namely, Sapana Awasthi, originally from Pithoragarh is mostly known as a Bhoojpuri Singer. Earlier, Sapana Awasthi had acted in one of the Uttarakhandi Movie called "Megha Aaa".

There is Johny Rana from Garwal in Marathi films who is comedian.

As you can see, due to lack of resources and not being our own regional film industry, these artiest had to force to in other states.

I am sure Govt would look into this issue. We will try from our side to take -up this issue with Govt of Uttarakhand.

Dear Mehta jee,

It is a very important thread you have started. I  sincerely thank you and  express that I feel a great sorrow when I see that government has not played its important role to uplift the culture of UK by starting its own UK channel, Film Board etc.  However, it came to know me that there are some Parishads they have started but they have gone in the hands of the people who do not understand what basically the culture is.  I request personally that kindly take this note to the government of UK so that something can be done in this segment.   Without film board in UK it is difficult here to get certification from Delhi.   As soon as the visual media starts in UK, the standard and moral character of the artists will also be high.  It is really a great work by you dear Mehta, please go on...go on. At least first they should start the FM channel.
