National Museum of Indian Cinema seeks artefacts from industry

Wednesday, January 11, 2017

The upcoming National Museum of Indian Cinema (NMIC) has appealed people from within the industry to come forward and donate memorabilia related to Indian cinema.

The Museum Advisory Committee, chaired by veteran film maker Shyam Benegal, appealed to the film industry to donate rare artefacts, vintage instruments and other memorabilia to the National Museum, which chronicles the century old journey of cinema in India.

The museum will be setup in the Films Division premises.

"A visit to the film museum should be an engrossing experience and we should have a number of interactive sections, where viewers can watch clips from classics, listen to rare recordings or learn about how cinema was made in the bygone era," Benegal said in a statement.

The Museum Advisory Committee, which met yesterday also gave its nod for the thematic display in the Phase II of the museum.

National Council of Science Museums, Kolkata, under the Ministry of Culture, is curating the museum.

Secretary, Information & Broadcasting, Ajay Mittal, who was a special invitee at the meeting, said the government has attached enormous importance to NMIC, to build it as a platform to present various facets of Indian cinema.

NMIC is conceived as a two phase museum. Phase I is housed in the heritage building- Gulshan Mahal, mostly displaying static artefacts and telling the story of Indian cinema in a chronological form.

Phase II of the Museum, being housed in the modern building will sport over 40 interactive galleries devoted to cinema across India, journey of Indian cinema from silent era to talkies, technology and creativity in cinema as well as a Children's activity gallery.
