GOVT TO GIVE FUNDS TO PROMOTE FILMS GOING FOR OSCARS, GLOBAL FESTS
The Ministry of Information & Broadcasting has announced a special fund that will help promote India’s official entry to the Oscars under the foreign film category and other films that are selected for major international festivals. Filmmakers have often complained that despite getting honours like the National Award, when they take their films to international festivals, they don’t get any support from the government.
