Govt. to take over film distribution

The government has decided to take over the distribution once again under it's control.
At present, the film distribution is solely handled by the private sector and it is expected the government would issue a gazette shortly to take over the film distribution.
The film distribution was taken over to the government in 1970 when the Film Corporation was established under the government led by Sirimavo Bandaranaike in 1970.
But later, the film distribution was privatised in several stages.
