Panaji, Nov 24 (UNI) Indian Documentary Producers Association (IDPA) President Usha Deshpande on Saturday said that getting audience and funds are the two challenges before the documentary film makers and efforts are being made to overcome these problems.

Addressing a press conference at Media Centre here, she said IDPA was endeavouring to provide exposure to documentary film-makers by organising film screenings, approaching film clubs for screening, negotiating with television channels for slots and participating in film festivals across the country.

''It also organises competitions, workshops, seminars, masterclasses etc,'' she said.

Talking about Open Forum which is going to be organised from November 25-27 for an hour starting at 1330 hrs during the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) 2018, Ms Deshpande said the themes would be 'Director’s take on biopics - how much fact and how much fiction is there in it?', 'Is technique over-riding content in today’s film-making and its impact', 'Cellphones are making each one of us into film-makers', 'Is this medium capable of graduating into way of making proper films?'.

Usha Deshpande, an alumni of screenplay writing course of FTII, is an independent producer, director and writer.
