Film Bazaar Co-Production Market 2015 CALL FOR ENTRIES

Co-Production Market 2015 officially announces call for submissions from filmmakers with compelling South Asian stories seeking co-production, financial and artistic support from attending co-producers, sales agents, distributors and financiers from the world over. We begin accepting entries from 19 June 2015, submissions close on 31 July. 20 remarkable South Asian stories will be selected this year. Projects get to pitch their film to the Indian and international film community that attends Film Bazaar with a focus on fiction features. The pre-requisite of submission states that a film project must be an original story with a South Asian connect and must have a producer attached with 25% of the finance in place. In addition to the above the project must have scope for international co-production, distribution and sales. 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 with the intention 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. Nina Lath Gupta, Managing Director, NFDC says, “The Co-Production Market has been and continues to be the most important segment of the Bazaar. The Market allows international producers to understand current trends in cinema from India and the rest of South Asia. With more and more co-productions from India making a mark in international film festivals and box office, and the Co-Production Market offering the best available projects in one place, the market has become a must-attend event for the international producing community.” In 2014 the Co-Production Market hosted 32 projects from 12...
