CLOSE co-operation between key stakeholders in the film industry is bound to bring in just rewards and put Fiji on the world map of cinema.
Film Fiji CEO Florence Swamy said production activity would intensify in Fiji this year and the coming years if Fiji Film Festivals continue to be staged.
Mrs Swamy said as people were aware, Fiji's emerging as a popular film destination for international film producers with half a dozen feature films and close to 30 television shows having been shot in the country this year.
"As the Fiji National University Fiji Film Festival production trend continues, there will be increased opportunities for our developing filmmakers, actors, and service providers.
"It underscores the farsighted academics at the FNU who manage a fully functional film school."
She says the more they have to offer by way of professionalism to international filmmakers, the more tempted they would be to come here to make their movies.
"Government has most certainly been doing its part by providing significant tax incentives to encourage those who are not only seeking beautiful locations with a vibrant infrastructure, but a chance to save real money in a very expensive industry."
