Tvm: Kinfra Film and Video Park (KFVP), the first Infotainment Industrial Park in the country at Kazhakuttam near Thiruvananthapuram is offering incubation support for start-ups from the Entertainment and Animation industry. The incubation centre at KFVP offers the right ambience for creative minds to start off, without incurring huge costs. The centre, which can accommodate four units, comes with a 3-seat facility. Units can even find takers for their service within the park itself is an added incentive.
The Incubation Centre also offers a common discussion room inside the animation building to provide facilities for budding companies to start their activities. The entrepreneurs can use the other infrastructural facilities such as conference hall and business centre for a nominal user fee.
Set in a beautifully landscaped area of 75 acres of land, KFVP is a fully owned subsidiary company of Kerala Industrial Infrastructure Development Corporation (Kinfra), a statutory body of Government of Kerala aimed at developing industrial infrastructure in the State. KFVP is also the first SEZ for Animation and Gaming in India, established to promote the animation and gaming industry and studios. The Kinfra Film and Video Park is strategically located between Technopark and the proposed Technocity project in Trivandrum.
The Kinfra Film and Video Park aims to give infrastructure support to the film industry by providing an ideal centre for screen content development and offers all modern amenities for the film industry & filmmakers. Kinfra is striving to tap some major investments from entertainment conglomerates from India and abroad and convince them to set up units in Kerala. KFVP proposes to establish an International Animation School in the campus as part of its second phase of development.
According to S Ramnath, MD, Kinfra, “Animation industry is poised for a major growth in the country and it has the potential to generate revenue like the IT and ITeS sector. This is our contribution to make Kerala the preferred destination for the animation industry. The proposed animation school will also trigger further investments in the animation and gaming industry.”
The Animation Building in the campus provides built-up space for export-oriented animation production units. Potential animation and gaming companies could move in and start up their facilities immediately and enjoy the benefits of the SEZ policy of Government of India. Leading animation companies in India like Accel Animation Studios and Vismaya’s Max Studio are already operating from KFVP. Toonz Animation and Dimensions Corporation are setting up its own studio in the campus. Prasad Film Laboratories has a post production centre at KFVP.
