Come, Film In Inida

By Pickle  July 26, 2019

The Film Facilitation Office (FFO) invites film producers and production companies from across the world to shoot their feature films, reality TV shows and commercial TV series in India, a country with locations of untold beauty. Discover the multi-cultural land of dreams and stories.

India, a land of stories and a melting pot of emotions, narrates itself through breathtaking landscapes. It expresses itself via age-old, man-made splendours like the Taj Mahal, the mythological narratives at the Ghats of River Ganges, and the cultural clans of the Seven Sisters in the North-East of India. Little wonder then that films shot in India pulsate with life. Coming to India, a filmmaker comes home to his imagination.

Film Facilitation Office acts as a facilitation point for filmmakers in assisting them to get requisite permissions while disseminating information on shooting locations as well as the talent, resources and facilities available for production and post production. It proactively works closely with various Central and State Government Agencies to create a film friendly environment in India.
