Oct 17, 2012 — The Big Indian Picture writes a detailed piece abt the Save Indie Campaign
In continuing with its efforts to bring forth the concerns of independent cinema, TBIP takes a petition started by a group of filmmakers to the I&B Ministry
The Information and Broadcasting Secretary Uday Kumar Varma has expressed doubts to TBIP about whether the I&B Ministry will agree to the demands of 30 filmmakers who have asked it to fund the construction of new theatres to exhibit independent cinema. The filmmakers put out a petition on the website change.org on October 2 which asks, among other things, that Rs 200 crore of the Rs 600 crore which the I&B Ministry has put aside for film restoration be used to fund such theatres instead.
