CBFC to issue E-certificates to benefit producers

The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) seems to have resolved to reduce the red-tap and issue censor certifications in a hassle-free manner this Covid-19 season.

As reported by Eenadu, the regional office of the CBFC in Hyderabad has taken a decision to issue e-certificates to producers in order to expedite the process of certifications. This is going to benefit the producers of Telugu movies.

Tollywood will stand to gain from the introduction of e-certificates. Producers are going to have the advantage of submitting their films to the CBFC in any form (hard disk, Qube, etc).

Moreover, in order to facilitate direct-to-home OTT releases possible, certifications will be expedited for the benefit of small producers, several of whom had made small-budget films on borrowed money. They have waited for theatres to be reopened. With this not in sight any time soon, they are planning to skip the theatrical release of their movies.
