Film academy to be established in capital


ISLAMABAD: 
The government will set up a film academy in Islamabad and a film laboratory in Lahore to help revive the Pakistani film industry. The Ministry of National Heritage and Solidarity (NHS) has prepared a plan for the two projects, said officials.
NHS Federal Secretary Asif Ghafoor said, “We believe setting up a film academy and a laboratory will go a long way in reviving the film industry.”
Work on the academy will begin in 2013, he added. Former prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani had announced eight acres of land in sector H-8/1 for the construction of the academy.
Ghafoor said they will make a film division in the ministry, which will overlook affairs pertaining to films. He added that the government will also set up a cinema in the city, a long standing demand of Islamabadis.
Noted director Syed Noor, however, said the academy should not be made in Islamabad, and instead in Lahore. He explained that most people belonging to the film industry live in Lahore.
