TO WHOMSOEVER IT MAY CONCERN
Shri B.D.Garga, who over a period of several years has done considerable research on the Indian Cinema (much of it has appeared in Filmfare in India and Sight & Sound in England and several other periodicals in Europe) is making a film on the ‘Growth and History of Indian film industry’. The project has the sanction and approval of the Government of India.
This film would be mainly based on the material (stills, film clippings etc) which Shri Garga has in his personal collection. But to augment this material, he plans to use brief excerpts from old and new films. This film will be released by the Films Division, government of India in mid-May on the occasion of the Golden Jubilee of our industry.
There is no doubt that this is a worthy effort and difficult undertaking. IMPPS desires to extend all possible help to Shri Garga. In addition, we would request all producers in Bombay, Calcutta and other centres to provide him with whatever brief extracts he requires from their productions to make this film a truly historical record of the artistic development of our cinema.
