Filmmakers' Protest over Screen Quota to End Sunday

2006/07/26 | 752 views | Permalink | Source

Actors, directors and other film industry representatives will end on Sunday their 30-day overnight sit-in protest over the government's decision to halve the nation's screen quota.

The demonstrators are planning to hold a rally on Saturday and Sunday evening together with ordinary citizens to urge the government to withdraw its decision.

Last month, the government decided to cut in half the number of days that domestic theaters will be required to screen domestic films from one-hundred-46 to 73.

Film industry insiders worry that slashing the screen quota could hamper the development of the domestic film industry in the mid- to long term.
