As part of the yearlong Golden Jubilee Celebration of Manipuri Cinema, Manipuri State Film Development Society (MSFDS) is organising a three-day training workshop on Film Preservation and Archiving, to be held from April 10-12, 2021. The purpose of the workshop is towards building a pool of resources for the preservation and restoration of the cinematic heritage of Manipur. 

The first ever training workshop on film archiving and restoration is to be conducted as an initiative of the partnership MSFDS has developed with Film Heritage Foundation, Mumbai, said a release by MSFDS secretary Sunzu Bachaspatimayum.
