End to crisis in film industry

Our Bureau Thiruvananthapuram | Updated on November 18, 2011 Published on November 18, 2011

Talks held by the Minister for Cinema and Forests, Mr K. B. Ganesh Kumar, with warring Malayalam film industry factions ended here on a conciliatory note bringing curtains on a long-drawn crisis. Representatives of the Kerala Film Producers Association, Film Employees Federation Kerala (FEFKA), and Kerala Film Exhibitors Association attended the meeting. The Kerala Film Exhibitors Federation stayed out. A joint consultative committee comprising six members from each of the three organisations and the Association of Malayalam Movie Artistes (AMMA) would be formed to iron out the problems arising in the industry from time to time. The producers' association, which had stopped production of films, would announce a formal end to the strike after holding a general body meeting within the next three days. The Minister hoped that the consensus would help resolve the crisis that flares up from time to time.
