It is with great pleasure that I as the Chairman of the National Film Corporation send this message to mark the occasion of re launching of our official website. The National Film Corporation of Sri Lanka which was established in 1972 as per State Film Corporation Act No. 47 of 1971, still remains the pivotal organization, facilitating the development of the industry. With the dawn of peace and political stability in the country under the government of His Excellency Mahinda Rajapaksa, I am glad to say that once again we are entering into an era of hope and expectation for the local film industry. Signs are already visible for a better future.Therefore I am convinced that the industry has the potential to grow as a major economic sector, still maintaining its unique cultural identity. It is with great sense of responsibility that I would like to say that the Board of Directors of the National Film Corporation are deeply committed to realize this mission.
