Noida Film City
||This article needs additional citations for verification. (July 2010)|
The sprawling 100-acre (0.40 km2) Film City was established in 1987. The studio includes over 25 acres (100,000 m2) of indoor soundstages.
Over two decades old, the Film City has been a host to shootings for feature films: both for the mainstream Hindi cinema and for a large number of regional films made in Hindi, Bhojpuri, Bengali, Punjabi, Rajasthani, Kashmiri, Oriya and other Indian languages.
The Film City was selected as the venue for the seventh biggest film festival of India in 2007. Films are invited from all over the world to participate in the Global Festival of Films on Peace and Spirituality. Sixty four offices were launched from Film City to promote this world event.
Owing to its proximity to Doordarshan (the Prasar Bharti transmission headquarters in New Delhi) and a large number of private broadcasting and transmitting stations that have moved to the NCR region, the Film City has become a first choice for shooting television serials, news and other entertainment-cum-education programs.
The Film City is a gateway to Noida's twin brother, Greater Noida, which has developed as an ultra-modern industrial township, evincing interest from large globally established multinational corporations and other corporate houses promising international standards of living. Large-scale activity in all these studios, outdoor locales provided by the Film City, and the twin cities of Noida and Greater Noida have put it on the world map of filmmaking.
For the wide range of news, views, and current affairs programs being shot there, the Film City continues to attract a host of politicians, bureaucrats, and celebrities from practically every walk of life, making it one of the most sought-after centers of VIP visits. Foreign delegations and filmmakers from abroad are drawn to the Film City for their interest in studying its success story and for exploring the possibilities of collaborative joint ventures and culture exchange programs with the like-minded Indian media houses there.
