The side event was also attended by Secretary Ministry of Information & Broadcasting, Government of India, Apurva Chandra.

During the event, Jitendra Singh said, India has no dearth of talent having the century-old film legacy with leading names of Guru Dutt and Satyajit Ray who have been acknowledged for their artwork despite no avenues and facilities, Dr. Singh added.

Dr Jitendra Singh hoped that the business community will help in scaling up the efforts already taken by the Ministry of Tourism and Ministry of I&B.

Singh said the ease of filmmaking and up gradation of the existing studios have to be pursued rigorously to support the film industry. Liberalization of state regulations has to be taken up by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting to encourage filmmaking throughout India, Dr. Singh added.

Various important sessions of the side event on Tourism deliberated upon how to leverage the power of Film Tourism to promote destinations. The sessions provided an opportunity for the States/ UTs to share their policies and best practices which helped them develop film tourism. The event also provided an opportunity for the Industry Stakeholders to give their suggestions and feedback on the factors that will encourage filmmakers to shoot in various locations in the country.
