Maxx Media , a subsidiary of Vision Corp Ltd , on Tuesday announced that it has acquired the sole & exclusive photo distribution rights to web & print publications worldwide for Orissa Film Festival to be held Bhubaneshwar from 22nd – 24th May 2008 .
Orissa Film Festival is being jointly organised by Vision Corp Limited and government of Orissa. A number of Bollywood stars besides other prominent personalities are likely to participate in the festival.
Orissa Film Industry (OFI) is one of the oldest film industries of India. It is loaded with highly talented and spirited people. Most of them have proved themselves in Hindi film industry, South Indian films and even at international level. Orissa Film Industry’s caliber is second to none and it has potential to compete at national and international level.
Every year films made in Orissa participate in various national and international film festivals and earn lots of appreciation. In spite of all this Orissa film industry is deprived of the attention it deserves. It is considered as small and one of the least recognized industries. Oriya films and albums do not have market at national level. Even within the state they find it difficult to compete with Hindi and English films/albums.
“VISION Corp endeavors to create a special place for Orissa Film Industry on the map of Global Cinema. So we are also involving entire BOLLYWOOD to make the event a grand charming and encouraging. We strive to ensure that the ‘talents’ of the state get a fair chance to exploit their skills and get national and international recognition. We hope OFI AWARD 2008 reaches greater heights and make the state proud,” a Maxx Media report said.
Part of the sponsorship amount will be used to create a fund for helping poor and inactive film personalities who are achievers in their respective fields Since the 1938 but are not able to fulfill their dreamz due to financial needs.
