Subsidy scheme for films shot in Goa

The Goa Government has approved a scheme to provide Goan producers with 50 per cent subsidy on inputs up to a maximum of Rs 20 lakh to encourage indigenous film talent in Konkani, Marathi, English and Hindi.

Tacking to mediapersons after the Cabinet approved the scheme on the eve of the 36th International Film Festival of India (IFFI) here, Chief Minister, Pratapsingh Rane, said adequate budgetary provision would be made for the purpose.

Under the scheme, applicable for only domicile Goans with 15 years of minimum stay in the island State, producers should shoot at least half of the film in Goan locales.

The scheme would be brought under the purview of the State Department of Information and Publicity.

Rane said he was happy with the works now underway for the IFFI beginning here on November 24.
