The Indian Motion Picture Producers’ Association (IMPPA) wrote to the Department of Culture of the Maharashtra State Government, highlighting the lack of sufficient funding for Marathi films over the past three years. This is affecting the Marathi film industry.
A letter to Amit Deshmukh, Minister of Medicine, Education and Culture, was circulated among the media on Saturday. The letter says: “The Maharashtra government-sponsored grant for Marathi films has greatly revived the Marathi film industry. This grant was given to Marathi filmmakers despite the very poor market conditions. It has made it possible to survive, and more producers are planning and launching new Marathi films in the hope of receiving a significant amount of funding from the Maharashtra state government. “
“Unfortunately, subsidy payments have stopped altogether since three years, and no producer has received subsidies during this period. Although more than 300 films are already eligible and are applying for subsidies. , No reply. “
“The reason for this disappointment is that in the last three years there has been no committee formed to display, evaluate and determine the amount of subsidies paid for eligible films, and there is a committee there. Because no one takes action regarding the payment of subsidies. “
“Producers can’t do anything because they are eligible to receive subsidies, but the same is rejected because the government has determined that it is not appropriate to appoint a committee to approve the subsidies.”
“All Marathi producers face many difficulties and financial problems due to the failure of the Maharashtra Government’s promise to pay subsidies.”
“On behalf of our members and all Marathi film producers, we are urgent and immediate to establish a grant approval committee to evaluate and guarantee the Maharashtra State Government’s commitment to the Marathi film industry. I ask your kind self to kindly start the action of. I am satisfied, “the letter further reads.
