Call For Entries: Film Bazaar Co-Production Market 2015

By Arun Fulara. Posted on June 19, 2015

The Film Bazaar Co-production Market 2015 has called for entries from filmmakers with compelling stories seeking co-production financial) and artistic support from attending sales agents, distributors and financiers from the world over. 20 South Asian stories will be selected this year. The 9th edition of the Film Bazaar organized by NFDC will take place from 20-24 November, 2015.

What Is It All About

Projects get to pitch their film to the Indian and international film community that attends Film Bazaar with a focus on fiction features.

Starting this year, the program has gained added leverage with the inclusion of an open forum on pitching. This activity has been introduced based on industry feedback so that filmmakers should not be required to make multiple pitches during meetings.

The forum will be organised a day prior to the start of the Co-production Market and will allow selected participants to pitch their projects to noted industry professionals attending the market. This enables participants to effectively use their time during the one-on-one meetings for more in-depth discussions focused on project specific needs and negotiations.

Deadlines

Entries open from 19 June, 2015 and close on 31 July, 2015  20th Aug 2015.

Eligibility

  1. All film projects must be original stories with a South Asian connect.
  2. Feature films must have a minimum duration of 70 mins.
