Taking Indo-French cooperation to newer heights, five major Indian film producers, including from Yash Raj Films and the Film and Television Producers Guild of India, were taken on a five-day tour of the picturesque Occitanie region in southern France.
 
The April 17-22 visit was aimed to promote France’s diverse and picturesque regions, aside from Paris, as filming destinations for Indian movies.
 
The initiative was organised by the French Embassy in India in collaboration with Film France and Languedoc Roussillon Cinema. The Occitanie region draws 30 million tourists annually.
 
The visiting Indian group included: Aashish Singh, Vice President - Production, Yash Raj Films; Kassim Jagmagia, Creative Head - Excel Entertainment; Kanchan Marathe, Director (Creative and Production) - Viacom 18 Media Pvt. Ltd.; Nishanthan Niruthan, General Manager - Lyca Productions; Kulmeet Makkar, CEO - Film and Television Producers Guild of India.
  
Welcoming the move, Ambassador of France to India, Alexandre Ziegler, said, “France is an excellent choice for film production on all counts – it has a wide variety of dazzling locales plus filming incentives. The French Film Commission offers a special tax rebate (TRIP) to support international projects that are entirely or partly made in France, involving its ultra-modern technical hubs and highly skilled crew. We look forward to more promising openings for Indo-French collaboration.”
