New Delhi — In a major initiative to explore possibilities of collaboration, India’s Ministry of Information & Broadcasting is organizing a Special Interactive Session with Mr. John Bailey, President of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, on May 28, at Siri Fort Auditorium, in New Delhi.

The interaction will not only deliver insights into the thought leadership at Oscars but will also be informative for critical stakeholders attending the event. It will throw light on the nuances behind the craft of cutting edge filming techniques and help develop an understanding amongst the Indian film-makers about creating world-class content.

Mr. Bailey will also be interacting with Mr. Amit Khare, Secretary, Ministry of I&B. The interaction will be an opportunity for the Ministry to highlight financial incentives offered to foreign filmmakers to shoot in India. They will also discuss a single window facilitation mechanism for filming in India, financing co-production of films, and promotion of single-screen theatres in small towns across the country.

Recently, in the 47th edition of International Film Festival of India (IFFI), Mr. Robert Yeoman, renowned Cinematographer, and Mr. Alan Heim, distinguished Film Editor from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, had taken Master Classes in their respective fields. This interactive session presents an opportunity to enhance the outreach of the Festival further, and explores the possibilities of collaboration with the Academy for the Golden Jubilee edition of IFFI to be held in Goa in November 2019.

John Bailey is the first Cinematographer to hold the position of Academy President. His credits include “Ordinary People,” “The Big Chill,” “Groundhog Day,” “As Good as It Gets,” “The Anniversary Party,” “The Way Way Back” and “A Walk in the Woods.” As a cinematographer, he is best known for his collaborations with directors Paul Schrader, Lawrence Kasdan, Michael Apted, and Ken Kwapis.

In 1985, Bailey shared the Cannes Film Festival Best Artistic Contribution Award with Eiko Ishioka and Philip Glass for “Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters.” He was nominated for the Independent Spirit Award for Best Cinematography for “Tough Guys Don’t Dance,” and the Camerimage Golden Frog Award for Best Cinematography for “Forever Mine.”

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is a global community of more than 9,000 of the most accomplished artists, filmmakers, and executives working in film. In addition to celebrating and recognizing excellence in filmmaking through the Oscars, the Academy supports a wide range of initiatives to promote the art and science of the movies, including public programming, and educational outreach.

• The prestigious Academy Awards, also known as the “Oscars,” honor the best talent in films, be it Hollywood or International cinema. Although India sends an official entry to the Oscars every year, it only gets snubbed. No Indian film has ever won an Oscar!
