Thiruvanathapuram: Actor-turned-producer Jaaved Jafferi says the media should play an important role in promoting good documentary films and taking them to public.

While speaking at the Trigger Pitch, a programme conducted by the Indian Documentary Federation and Chalachitra Academy, Jaaved said even small contributions from the media for the promotion of documentary films will have a great effect.

The actor is the chairman of Indian Documentary Foundation (IDF).

Though many documentaries are being made in India, most of them remain unnoticed as they don`t get into the mainstream easily, he said.
