A discussion between President Maithripala Sirisena and the members of the Association of the Sinhala Film Artists was held on Tuesday (23) at the Presidential Secretariat.

The discussion was based on the current issues of the film industry in Sri Lanka.

The artists who pointed out that the Sinhala film industry has been protected even at a grass root level for more than six decades, due to the state patronage and the encouragement, stated that the Government’s assistance is essential to produce a quality film and to screen them.

They also drew the President’s attention about the issues arisen due to contradicting of the relevant policies in governing the screening, importation and distribution of the films.

The Government will not hesitate to take necessary actions to protect the film industry of the country and the artists, the President said requesting the artists to submit their suggestions in writing to him.

Expressing his views regarding excluding the taxes on imported films and Tele-dramas the President emphasized as the Government working in this regard paying their special attention, they will not allow any room to do injustice for local artists.
