Discussions are underway on the proposed Film City in the Himalayan State of Sikkim.
DoNER Minister Jitendra Singh on Wednesday held discussions on the proposal of a Film City in Sikkim.
In the meeting Sikkim’s film policy, eco-heritage film city and Sikkim Global Film Festival were discussed.
Notably, a Film and Television Institute (FTI) was sanctioned by the Centre for Arunachal Pradesh in 2018.
Jitendra Singh said Sikkim is a picturesque location for a Film City.
“Discussed the proposal of a Film City for Sikkim. Northeast has several picturesque locations which have remained under-utilized because of lack of infrastructure. The Narendra Modi government has already sanctioned a Film and Television Institute for Arunachal Pradesh,” Jitendra Singh said.
