Domestic Screen Quota Set at 109 Days

2006/06/29 Source

The domestic screen quota, or the number of days that the nation's theaters must show homegrown movies, will be 109 days this year.

The Culture and Tourism Ministry on Thursday said it gave domestic films two-fifths of the possible screening days in the first half, or 73 out of 182 days, and a fifth in the second half, or 36 out of 183 days, to come up with the figure of 109 days.

The final figure, however, could change as the culture minister has discretionary power on the quota cut depending on the supply and demand of domestic films.

Early this year, the government announced a plan to halve the quota from 146 to 73 days.
