NATIONAL FILM AWARDS - INDIA



Recognized as one of the liveliest of the arts, cinema is both a means of creative expression and a powerful medium of mass communication. It
is a popular means of entertainment as well as an instrument of social change. Realizing its vast potential, the government has been promoting
cinema in the country for the past many years. The National Film Awards like various other promotional schemes of the government aim at
encouraging the production of quality films.

Started on the recommendation of the Film Enquiry Committee (Headed by S.K.Patil) as an annual incentive in 1954, the state film awards strive
to promote aesthetic and technical standards of films. The nomenclature of the awards was changed to National Film Awards in 1966. The awards
have since come a long way to cover the entire spectrum of Indian cinema.

Initially, only three awards were instituted :- the Presidentís Gold Medal for the best feature film and the best documentary and the Prime
Ministerís Silver Medal for the best childrenís Film. The medallions were later changed to Swarna Kamal and Rajat Kamal. Cash prizes were also
added to these awards subsequently.

The need to promote cinema made the government introduce awards in various Indian languages and dialects in 1955 itself. Separate awards for
artistes and film technicians were introduced in 1968.
