No shoots from today following strike

Everything has come to standstill in Tamil cinema from today. No shoots, no shows in cinema halls, no post production and no film functions too. The trouble between Tamil Film Producers Council (TFPC) and Digital Service Providers (DSPs) has led to strike work. For the third consecutive week, never before in the history, there are no new releases in theatres.

TFPC chief Vishal has been vocal in criticizing DSPs. Speaking to News Today, he said, 'When we shifted from print to digital, we were promised that there would be decline in Virtual Print Fee (VPF). But it is not the case. We end up paying more today. AT a time when very few come to theatres, we end up burning a huge hole in our pocket'. He also said that they are firm on their demand.

'The DSPs should come for an agreement understanding the travails of producers and the VPF charges must be reduced, he said and added, 'We will bring players from other States, if DSPs fail to come to terms'.FEFSI too has supported TFPC in their strike call.
