As Bright Film, Manipur has been marching ahead with SIX successful Manipuri Feature Films, this company has the challenge to take part in the Manipuri Cinema Movement. Besides, its routine work of producing value-based-commercial Manipuri Films, the company had presented DAWN-2000, a mega-event of Manipuri Film World on the 31st December, 1999 and 1st January, 2000 to the people of Manipur in general and to the film enthusiasts of the State in particular. Dawn 2001 was also held with grand success last year

DAWN - 2002 is also with the same objective - "Hunting Film Talents". This time, the company has new modalities and conditions with respect to indigenous spirit of the region.

  2. There will be a "One day Condense Course" for the contestants of all the Categories before the main event.

  4. A limited number of contestants will be selected for the Main Event from the three categories.

  5. First, Second and Third Position holders will be awarded nominal cash prize and certificate.

  6. No odd dress.

  7. Special attention will be paid to the dance movements and its acceptability to the Manipuri Society.

5. The nominal rate of Entry Pass for DAWN - 2002 is fixed at Rs. 30/- only per seat. Bright Film feels the urge of not collecting undue funds. Profit (if any) may go to Welfare Fund of Cine Artistes and Technicians Assn. Manipur, as the company did the same in DAWN - 2001.

6. Such a Programme is better organized by a government Agency with a wider range in a state like Manipur. But due to the lack of a proper "State Film Policy", nobody could rise an active hand. A state like Manipur may find a way to solve the unemployment problem with a Film Industry, as we are very much rich in Culture and Arts.

It is a humble appeal to all the sections of the state to know the present need of Manipuri Cinema and give a hopeful hand to the stagnant movement.

Bright Film Manipur.
