Filming in India

Seamless Filming now a Reality in India

admin   September 9, 2021

In an effort to reach out to the filming fraternity across the globe, the FFO website http://www.ffo.gov.in has made the single window clearance for filming in India a reality. It helps international and domestic producers cut through the permission process required to shoot films in India.

Laying a red carpet for global producers and studios as part of its mandate to promote India as a filming destination, the Film Facilitation Office (FFO) has set up a web portal, http://www.ffo.gov.in, which provides all filming related information on a single platform.

Having been set up as a single window clearance system for granting mandatory filming permissions from Central and State governments, the portal also lists out all important guidelines and advisories for both international and Indian filmmakers. Whether it is accessing information related to filming, or understanding the processes of international arrivals, visa issuance, or application for quarantine exemption request, it’s all easily accessible to filmmakers at the click of a button.

Applying online for filming in India through the portal is an absolute breeze. Once a filmmaker applies through the portal, there is an automatic transmission of information to all the nodal agencies. The web portal has information regarding the Nodal officers of all Indian States and Union Territories, along with their filming policies and guidelines. Besides enabling online submission of applications for filmmakers, the portal also enlists India’s co-production treaties.

It disseminates information on India’s various shooting locations across all the States (each location having detailed information relevant to that particular location) and lists facilities available with the Indian film industry for postproduction, animation and VFX.

The layout of the website has been kept simple with all information neatly organised under each subhead. For example, if you are an international filmmaker, production house or a domestic filmmaker seeking permissions for shooting there are separate step-by-step guidelines under Permissions tab, which also has online application, and guidelines about aerial filming, filming with animals, application for filming visa and temporary import of filming equipment.

Applying through the FFO portal has never been easier. It requires the applicant to sign up with self-generated username and password to create an account, and start an incredible journey on one of the most user-friendly websites anywhere in the world for obtaining filming permissions with FFO by their side at every step of the way to guide them through all the nitty-gritty associated with filming in India.

The website also allows registration of local representatives or line producers of foreign productions in order to carry out recce of shooting locales.

After completing the registration process by uploading all documents in digital format, such as, detailed script, synopsis or concept, passport details of the crew, details of shooting locations in India and the period of shooting, etc, a nominal application processing fee is required to be submitted to start a one-on-one relationship with nodal officers of various government departments and agencies to help filmmakers realize their celluloid dreams.

The FFO, which became operational in 2016, has since assisted several international and domestic productions to complete their projects (Feature Films, Reality TV shows and/or Commercial TV Serials) in India. The portal bears a testimony to its proactive approach towards strengthening filming ecosystem in India by helping filmmakers link with shooting locations as well as the talent, resources and facilities available within the Indian Film industry for production and post-production. Rest assured you are in good hands.

In its endeavour to create a world-class film-friendly ecosystem in the country, FFO has been engaged in promoting various filming destinations dotting the country ranging from the lofty, snow-clad Himalayas to the sandy beaches of Bay of Bengal and the Indian Ocean. As part of this sustained effort, the ‘Most Film Friendly State’ Award is given away each year during the National Film Awards ceremony in order to provide national and international level visibility to the best
performing states in terms of filming infrastructure, favourable policies and incentives offered to filmmakers. Beginning 2015, this prestigious award has been won by Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Sikkim

The small Himalayan state with its mesmerizing natural splendors coupled with an investor-friendly policy to make the work of filmmakers easy is extremely alluring.

With its own brief history of cinema, attracting prominent filmmakers like Satyajit Ray and Dev Anand, the state government has made several attractive provisions to have a friendly film shooting environment for the producers and directors and also for the local filmmakers. The state is also working towards setting up a film city. Over the past few years, the state, especially the picturesque northern district, has served as the perfect backdrop of several Bollywood films and many regional films.

On the policy front, Sikkim offers all permits/permissions and paperwork through a single window system. The state government has also identified, catalogued and developed promising potential shooting locations, which have aesthetic and cinematic appeal.

admin   September 14, 2020

Stating that filming in India has now become easy, TCA Kalyani, Joint Secretary (Films), Ministry of Information and Broadcasting and MD, National Film Development Corporation, said Webseries and Television Series will also be included in the incentive package for co-production and film shooting.

Indian producers and filmmakers should work towards producing at least ten Co-Productions each year, stated TCA Kalyani, Joint Secretary (Films), Ministry of Information and Broadcasting and MD, National Film Development Corporation. She said this while participating in a webinar session for the formal inaugural of the India’s participation
at Toronto International Film Festival.

India’s virtual participation at TIFF is organised by the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting in partnership with Confederation of Indian Industry. India at Toronto 2020 activities include interactive discussions on filming, co-production, media services among others. Business to Business meetings and pitch sessions are also planned during TIFF.

In her opening address to delegates on the India-Canada opportunities in the filmed entertainment space, Kalyani underlined that the new rules of procedures that have finally been made by the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting will incentivize co-production, filming in India and go a long way in further strengthening Co-Production opportunities.

“Webseries and Television Series will also be included in the incentive package for co-production and film shooting,” stated Kalyani. The AVGC (Animation, Visual Effects, Gaming and Comics) Sector will also be part of the incentives provided under the Champion Sector for audio visual industry.

The lively, interactive panel discussion elicited number of participant questions. The participants in the panel included Kalyani, Apoorva Srivastava, India’s Consul General in Toronto, Rahul Rawail, film director and producer, Roger Nair, film producer from Toronto and Neerja Bhattia, Executive Director, CII.

The spotlight on India at Toronto will showcase Film in India, promote International Film Festival of India, India as a post-production hub, promote collaborations for films with international production houses and encourage Indian Panorama Films for sales and syndication .

The objective behind the participation is to promote Indian films across linguistic cultural and regional diversity so as to forge an increasing number of international partnerships in the realms of distribution, production, filming in India, script development and technology, thereby accelerating the growth of film sector in India.

India has its advantage at every filmmaking process. It has a strong domestic film industry across the country. More than anything else, India has access to world class technicians and equipment; amazing choice of locations to shoot any type of film. Skilled professionals are available across the country. India is gearing up for the 51st edition of International Film Festival Of India, Goa from 20 to 28 November 2020 (hybrid format).

The market potential for Indian content in Toronto is huge because of the strong presence of the Indian diaspora and great interest in Indian Cinema. India-Canada are in a co-production treaty and the delegation will explore opportunities to work on co-producing films with Canada.

India through various interactions, will promote ease of shooting films in India through Film Facilitation Office (FFO) that facilitates Single Window Clearance for film-makers and provides the platform for ‘film tourism’ in India.

In his address, Rahul Rawail said, “With India soon to offer financial incentives for co-production and filming under the champion sector, whole landscape of entertainment business is set to change. It will bring more and more co-production opportunities for India and global producers.”

Roger Nair said, “We have been in the business for 25 years. We see bright times ahead for India-Canada business collaboration. We have shot films without the co-production treaty- about 14 films with India now. So, we are very open to working with Indian producers and filmmakers in the new incentive programme.”

A Call From Uttarakhand For Filmmakers Of The World

admin   February 20, 2020

Driven by a Film Policy conducive for filmmakers and directors, the Most Film Friendly State of India is counting big on its pristine locales, friendly people and good law and order along with several sops to promote filmmaking in the state. In this exclusive interview with PICKLE, Chief Minister of Uttarakhand, TRIVENDRA SINGH RAWAT, spells out the clear priorities of his government to make Uttarakhand a magnet for filmmakers from across the globe. By Arun Kumar Das

Congratulations! Uttarakhand has bagged the National Award for Most Film Friendly State in 2018. How do you see this achievement?

It is a matter of pride that Uttarakhand has received the top award during the 66th National Film Award ceremony for being the Most Film-Friendly State in India. The Uttarakhand Film Development Council was formed in the year 2015. But despite having so little time at its disposal, a favourable atmosphere was created for filmmakers/directors to shoot their films in the state. With the first prize at the National Film Awards, we hope that more films will now be shot in Uttarakhand. To ensure this, the state government has implemented an attractive film policy keeping in view various facilities that can be availed by filmmakers. In the investment conference held in the state last year, suggestions were also made by the filmmakers from India and abroad, after which the comprehensive Film Policy 2019 was implemented by the state government.

Trivendra Singh Rawat, Chief Minister of Uttarakhand

Since Uttarakhand is one of the most beautiful film locales in the world, what steps are being taken by the state government to attract global filmmakers and production houses to the state?

The state government has made its Film Policy attractive, which includes the single window shooting permission. Now no fee is being charged for shooting in the state. Under the new film policy, a provision of providing a grant up to Rs 1.5 crore has been put in place. Along with this, free of cost police protection during the duration of film shooting and the provision of residential arrangement for shooting crew with 50 per cent discount in local government guest houses for the entire shooting period has also been made. With these facilities in place, we hope that more and more filmmakers will come here to shoot their films.

According to you what are the advantages of getting a film shot in Uttarakhand?

The serene environment of Uttarakhand state is suitable for shooting films. We have some of the best scenic natural sites here, which are apt for shooting. Our people are peace-loving. No production team or artist faces any behavioural challenge from locals while shooting here. The state offers the best law and order situation across India. Currently, many air services are directly connected to Dehradun, which is convenient for filmmakers.

What is your message to the global film producers to come and shoot?

I believe that Uttarakhand is not only suitable for shooting Bollywood films, but Hollywood films as well. Recently, Discovery Channel’s most popular programme, Man vs Wild, was shot in Uttarakhand, which featured Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi. Apart from this, the famous Hollywood actor Will Smith also came here to shoot a film. That is why I would call upon the global filmmakers and directors to come to Uttarakhand without any hesitation and shoot their films here. The state government will provide all possible support to them.

Is Single Window Clearance a reality in Uttarakhand? What has been the experience of dealing with foreign filmmakers?

For the shooting of films in the state, we have implemented a system of Single Window Clearance, which has yielded favourable outcomes for the state. A large number of films have been shot in the state since the system has been activated. Since 2017, more than 220 films, TV serials, documentaries, web series, etc, have been shot in the state. So far, film producers/directors from Japan, France and Hollywood have shot their films in the state. They all have had a pleasant experience.

Do you have any sops or incentives to offer to foreign film crews? Do they get concession staying in hotels?

No proposal or suggestion has been received by the state government from foreign filmmaker directors regarding providing such assistance or encouragement. So far, those foreign film producers/directors who have shot their films in the state, have also not proposed any such thing to us. If any such suggestion comes before the state government, then every possible support will be provided in this regard. Hotels, guest houses under the state government have been providing filmmakers with a discount of 50 per cent on accommodations.

Do you have a panel of line producers on board?

A database is being prepared by the Uttarakhand Film Development Council, compiling details of all local artists, technicians, line producers, lyricists, writers, etc.

What other initiatives do you have in store for the creative industry and filmmakers to engage with the state?

Our government has given special attention to road connectivity. Better road connectivity to various cities has been maintained from Jollygrant Airport in Dehradun. The benefit of all these will be given to the filmmakers/directors coming to shoot films in the state.

The film shooting locales in the hill state can generate economic activities but for that, there is a need for ease of doing business mechanism. We understand this very well that the number of films shot in the state will give a boost to our tourism business. At the same time, the state will also get a new identity in the country and abroad. In view of the increasing interest of directors and filmmakers in the state, we have decided that films will be given the industry status in the state. Work has been started in this direction. This will increase employment opportunities at the local level.

Under the dynamic and visionary Chief Minister K Chandra Sekhar Rao, Telangana is leaving no stone unturned to make the State a popular film making destination of the world, here are the excerpts from an interview with B. Venkatesham, Tourism Secretary, Government of Telangana

The state of Telangana has some of the most beautiful film shooting locations. Tell us how film-friendly is the state for domestic and global filmmakers?
Telangana state is a place of rich heritage and historically Hyderabad state was ruled by Kakatiyas, Qutub Shahis and Nijam dynasties. Hyderabad city has more than 1,000 years of continuous living history ranging from the walled city of Old Hyderabad to Modern Hyderabad. There are Faluknama Palace, Golconda Fort, Charminar and Qutub Shahi tombs along with beautiful valleys and waterfalls spread across the state.
Many eminent filmmakers have on record highlighted the immense help they have been extended by the Telangana Government and its people while they shot their movies. The fact is that filmmaking is one of the most strenuous activities requiring a secure environment for filmmakers. We have always striven to ensure that and will continue to do so.

What steps are being taken by the government to bring global filmmakers and production houses to the film locales in the state?
A new government has been formed in Telangana State headed by the dynamic and visionary Chief Minister K Chandra Sekhar Rao. Under his leadership, Telangana Tourism and a dedicated nodal agency, Telangana State Film Development Corporation, have been formed for facilitating film shootings in the state. These agencies are working on various film-friendly policies in order to bring global and Indian film makers to discover the beauty of Indian stories, locations, art, culture and heritage.

What according to you are the advantages of getting a film shot in Telangana? What’s the infrastructure available for filmmakers here?
Hyderabad is a world-class film production centre offering award winning talent, both in front of and behind the camera. Leading edge post-production work, animation and special effect capabilities, stunning film making locations, state-of-the-art studio facilities along with comprehensive support services that deliver a seamless production experience from start to finish are available. The best example is the world renowned Ramoji Film City. It is acclaimed internationally and serves hundreds of films every year.

Does the state government offer sops like accommodation for crew to filmmakers during a film shooting?
Hyderabad is well connected with the rest of the world by an international airport and all the tourist destinations are well connected by rails and roads. The Telangana Tourism department also runs a hotel chain called Haritha Hotels. Their presence is spread across the state and located almost in all the tourist places. These hotels have qualified personnel and star facilities, providing accommodation, catering food and other amenities. Haritha Hotels has a website with all the required information and accommodation can be booked online. The Tourism department gives a rebate of about 30% on project basis. So film makers can book hotels in advance as per their filming schedules.

The Government of India has set up a Film Facilitation Office (FFO) for seamless single window clearance. Do you have any such single window clearance system in place to facilitate film shooting in the State?
To encourage film shooting in the State, Telangana Government is formulating a robust film tourism policy which includes a single window clearances for necessary permissions and logistic and administration assistance.
The specialty of the policy is that Telangana State Film Development Corporation will accept the application from filmmakers and process their application for shootings by pursuing the matter with various departments and issuing clearances within 7 days. If not done in the prescribed time frame, the applicants could take all permissions as deemed to have been given on the eighth day and could start shooting.

Do you have a redressal mechanism in place for film producers to contact when they face problems during a film shoot? Who is the first person to call in Telangana if someone wants to shoot?
We will be happy to assist filmmakers through the course of shooting and would try and eliminate any problem or difficulties. Telangana State Film Development Corporation (TSFDC) has appointed a nodal officer to understand the concerns and needs of filmmakers through the various stages of filmmaking and the permission process. Filmmaker can also reach the Executive Director of TSFDC for any query.

What other initiatives do you have for the creative industry and filmmakers to engage them?
The Telangana Tourism department is inviting filmmakers and producers across the globe to take part in the massive state wide “Fam-Tours” to get acquainted with the State and film locations.
These Fam-Tours campaign to build Brand Telangana and tell its beauty across all media platforms. We are also radically improving infrastructure across the state to make it them beautiful and functional for film makers.

Will you be forthcoming if any of the foreign film producers want to project Telangana as a backdrop for a feature film?
We are committed to creating great cinema. We aspire to become a part of the international filmmaking community which will be proud to see more of Telangana and our people in international cinema.
