KOCHI: The Malayalam Cine Technicians'  Association (MACTA) on Tuesday denied reports that a section of its members had expressed willingness to work closely with Kerala Film Producers Association (KFPA) which suspended film production activities following a tiff with the Film Employees Federation of Kerala (FEFKA).


At a press conference here on Wednesday, the office-bearers of the MACTA stated that they had no link with the MACTA Federation and reiterated their close association with the FEFKA. “Some people are misusing the name of MACTA and confusing media and the public. There is also an attempt to show that there is rift between the association and the FEFKA, which is totally baseless,” said G S Vijayan, chairman of the MACTA. The members of the association are also members of the FEFKA and that they fully endorse the stand taken by the latter regarding the wage hike of film technicians, he clarified.A case is under consideration of the High Court against the MACTA Federation for using the name of the association, Vijayan added. MACTA office-bearers Joshi Mathew, S N Swami  and P Suresh Unnithan were also present at the press conference.
