Film MOU Signed

Film Fiji, Fiji Airways and Tourism Fiji yesterday signed a memorandum of understanding to promote Fiji as a film destination at the Fiji Airways Sales office in Suva.

The MOU was signed by the Fiji Airways managing director and chief executive officer and Tourism Fiji chairman, Stefan Pichler and by Film Fiji CEO Dallas Foon.

It will see an organised approach by the three organisations in bringing to Fiji new opportunities for film production.

Mr Foon said they were very pleased to partner with Fiji Airways and Tourism Fiji in a co-operative effort to promote Fiji.

“A successful international movie always results in a marked increase in tourism to that location from fans and we want a boost in the tourism market,” Mr Foon said.

Mr Pichler said they had been working together over the past year to promote Fiji as a film destination and the MOU will now bring some structure to their earlier efforts.

“Tourism will be the big winner here if a major production is shot in Fiji, hence, it makes absolute sense to partner with Film Fiji for this,” Mr Pichler said.

Film Fiji had issued 52 approvals to productions ranging from small budgets to over $10 million last year and most of these productions flew Fiji Airways to come to Fiji.
