    13 * The [[FFC]] merges with the Indian Motion Picture Export Corporation to become the [[NFDC]]. Independent film-makers start the Forum for Better Cinema and ask the government to invite [[Satyajit Ray]] to head the new organisation. [[Ray]] declines the offer, urging the Forum to exercise caution. The [[NFDC]]’s Board combines disparate interests and is unable to agree which kind of cinema to support.

    1515* K. S. Karanth’s Report of the Working Group on National Film Policy is published. It recommends, e. g. , the foundation of a Chalachitra Akademi for film in line with the academies for literature, theatre, dance and the visual arts. The academy would combine the Directorate of Film Festivals, the [[National Film Archive of India]], a non-commercial import/export agency, a film museum and the means to fund film societies, education and research programmes. The government ignores the report.
