Federal govt to allow screening of foreign films in Pakistan

The federal government has decided to allow the screening of foreign films in Pakistan, it emerges on Tuesday.

Minister for Information Fawad Chaudhry while speaking to the journalists regarding the decisions of the federal cabinet, said: “For the revival of the cinema industry, we had proposed that the screening of non-Indian Punjabi films should be allowed in Pakistani cinemas.”

“The cabinet said that you should not limit it to Punjabi movies only but all international films except India should be allowed to be imported into Pakistan, so now we will resubmit the summary after amendment,” he added.

The federal minister maintained that Pakistan had 780 cinemas in the 1970s but now there are only 78 cinemas.

“If we don t take immediate steps to revive cinema and film, then our film industry – which is almost stagnant – may be closed completely,” he added.

“We have taken practical steps to revive the cinema industry and we are also bringing a film package for this industry which will be announced in the upcoming week,” Fawad Chaudhry added.
