THE Myanmar Motion Picture Organisation held a forum on ‘Creative Content industry development’ in Yangon yesterday, with an address by its patron U Aung Lwin.
In his speech U Aung Lwin stressed the need for government assistance to the development of the film industry.
According U Thein Swe of the Amyotha Hluttaw, the amendment of the motion picture law was under discussion in parliament. He spoke of plans to invite technicians and professionals of the film industry to the parliament’s session for their advice and suggestions.
Daw Phyu Phyu Thin of the Pyithu Hluttaw said the parliament’s Committee for Health and Sport Development was working on radical revisions to the law as the Motion Picture Law of
1996 was incompatible with the current trends of the film industry.
The organisation’s chairman U Lu Min said the forum was designed to find solutions to the weaknesses of the film world and ask for the government’s help as necessary.
Famous film directors and producers took part in discussions and gave suggestions on better processes for shooting, casting, producing and screening films.
The forum continues today.
