India is trying to boost its international production profile, and is now launching a new government resource. The main goal is to make it easier to film in the country, following a number of cases in which foreign producers have faced problems, primarily due to bureaucracy and corruption. India has now launched the Film Facilitation Office (FFO), helping filmmakers shoot across the Indian states and union territories.
“The outcome of engaging NFDC is to utilise their expertise towards setting up this specialised single window clearance system, which in the long run will facilitate according permissions for shooting in India by filmmakers with a view to tap the vast talent available in the Indian film industry as well as promoting Indian locales,” India’s minister of state for information and broadcasting Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore said.
