Film Development Board urged to scrap qualification requirement for directors
Published Date: Feb 02, 2018
Film Producers Association has submitted a memorandum to the Film Development Board, asking for the two-year-old directive by the Board – qualification requirement for directors – to be scrapped. The Board had issued a code of conduct two years ago stating that people who have studied film making or have spent 10 years in Nepali Cinema Industry will only be the ones eligible for directing. The decision has been perennially receiving a lot of flak from the film making community since the very inception. The code of conduct also barred people without experience in the industry from producing movies.
“It curbs the creative rights of a filmmaker and bars talent. It has also brought forth many legal and administrative complications”, said Producer Association President Akash Adhikari, submitting the memorandum to Board President Nikita Poudel.
