Yangon’s Film Development Center received a visit from Japan’s Commissioner for Cultural Affairs Mr Miyata Ryohei and his delegation yesterday. They also visited the Film Repository on Sasana Yeikthar Road in the same township.
The Japan delegation first visited the film development center at No. 50, Bahan Township and were greeted by center Chairman and Director-General of the Information and Public Relations Department, U Ye Naing, and staff. They observed the training courses, workshops, film analysis and the three renovated studios there.
The Film Development Center was established with the objective to provide quality training, facilitate discussion among the film community, and strengthen connections across all generations. The Japan delegation and Myanmar officials discussed the three Japan Film Festival coming to Nay Pyi Taw, Yangon and Mandalay in December of this year and January in the coming year, and the Myanmar-Japan Classic Film Screening in Yangon in March 2020.
The Japanese delegation then observed the black and white films and color motion pictures stored in the repository in addition to documentaries and DCPs. They discussed film preservation conducted in collaboration with Save Myanmar Film and the technical assistance required.—MNA (Translated by Zaw Htet Oo)
