The eighth edition of National Film Development Corporation (NFDC) Film Bazaar, held every year on the sidelines of IFFI, is all set to begin here from November 22.
The four-day event aims to encourage collaboration between the international and South Asian film fraternity.
NFDC will have many new sections including ‘film offices’, ‘investor pitch’ and ‘romance screenwriters lab’ apart from ‘world cinema’ and ‘available for remake’ categories in the viewing room.
Romance Screenwriters’ Lab, will focus on developing scripts based on romance and women-centric plots.
In ‘investor pitch’, there would be two sessions — first on pitching scripts in the romance genre and second, launching films that are looking for completion funds.
‘Film offices’ will have state/country tourism boards and country film commissions with a dedicated office at the Film Bazaar.
“We are excited to launch new sections at Film bazaar this year like Film offices, Investor Pitch and Romance Screenwriters’ Lab. We hope like last year this year too will be a soaring success with an aim to bring together film makers and production companies,” said Nina Lath Gupta, Managing Director, NFDC India.
The Film Bazaar, which will be held from November 22 to 24 on the sidelines of the India International Film Festival (IFFI), focuses on discovering, supporting and showcasing South Asian content and talent, production and distribution.
