ISLAMABAD, May 10, 2009 (Balochistan Times) -- Directorate General of Films and Publications (DFP) has established a digital film studio to promote creativity and ensuring a suitable film making atmosphere. This studio is another important achievement of DFP which would help meet the modern film making needs, said Director General DFP, Ghulam Hazoor Bajwa.

He said the Directorate has also been tasked to produce a documentary film on Grievances Wing of Prime Ministers Inspection Commission whose shooting work is under process. The Director General said the electronic media in private sector has witnessed expansion and there was a dire need to be equally equipped from the government side and added that in view of the competitive environment, DFP is in a position to make full use of the film studio.

He said a documentary film - Khadame Islam is transferred from 35mm to DVD format and released to different TV channels on death anniversary of Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto. Bajwa said the previous film making system, known as 35mm, was imported from the then Soviet Union in the early 1950s, which is now considered as obsolete and outdated in todays world. So we switched our documentaries from the older system to the latest digital film making, he said. He said demo CDs and rental list of studio facilities have been sent to private TV channels for information and marketing, adding that meetings with them are also being held for rental modalities of digital studio. Director Films at DFP, Maqsood Ahmad, who was also present said the machinery for digital film making worth Rs. 21 million was available but not installed.
