Pro-Screen Quota Legislation Sought

2006/02/09 | 100 views | Permalink | Source

Filmmakers and lawmakers who support the retention of the domestic screen quota have pledged to seek legislation to protect the quota.

The announcement came Thursday in a news conference held by a filmmakers' and actors' group protesting the planned halving of the quota from July and members of the parliamentary culture and tourism committee at the National Assembly.

They urged parliament to revise the law on promoting the domestic movie industry and ratify the UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of Cultural Diversity adopted in October last year.

They pledged to do everything they can in parliament to protect national cultural sovereignty.
