At least two movies will be shot in Fiji every month, says Fiji Audio Visual Commission (FAVC)acting chief executive Florence Swamy.

This was revealed to FijiLive in Suva today where FAVC announced Fiji National University (FNU) as its major sponsor of the 2012 Kula Film Awards.

"Not only should Fiji expect Bollywood films as we are also communicating with Hollywood producers and directors," she said,

"Very big names from Bollywood who are known globally will be coming to our shores very soon and this will be attracting the international media as well."

Swamy however remained tightlipped on the names of the Bollywood stars and said details will be released later.

"FAVC has been travelling the world to promote Fiji to major film markets and the success of some films shot here recently proves that  that Fiji is a good location for film shooting but also has infrastructure and personnel who can make things successfully completed."

FNU Unistudio director Ravi Malik said they have been receiving good response from big Indian producers and most of them are choosing Fiji as their film location.

"These are not small producers but those who charge billion dollars for production of the movies," he said.

"By 2013, there will be a minimum of 20 Bollywood movies shot here in Fiji."

He added two foreign language movie producers have also shown interest in shooting here and will be visiting the country soon.
