Film industry members to stage fast

The entire Tamil film industry will strike work and hold a day-long token fast in the city to condemn the high-handedness of UFO and Qube makers, Tamil Film Producers Council president Kalaipuli S Dhanu said today.Thanks to the digital revolution, movies are being screened in all theatres in Qube and EFO formats.

Those in the business are allegedly charging much and taking away the lion's share of profits from the pockets of producers.Addressing mediapersons, Dhanu said, 'UFO and Qube makers take exorbitant charges from producers and without the consent of producers attach advertisements in cinema halls and make money.

''Since we are dependent on them for releasing films, they are taking advantage of the situation,' he said and added, 'they also collect huge amount as tax from producers.

We don't know whether they pay the tax to the government'. 'To condemn the attitude of UFO and  Qube makers, we planned to carry out a protest demonstration in Chennai recently.

But considering the difficulties it would create on the road for motorists, we have now decided to hold a fast. We will announce the date and venue once we get permission'.Members of Tamil Film Directors Union, South India Film Artistes Association and FEFSI among others were also present on the occasion.
