Independent film-makers set eyes on ninth edition of Film Bazaar


Following the international recognition Raam Reddy’s Thithi gathered at the Locarno International Film Festival, independent film-makers in Karnataka have set their eyes on the 9th edition of National Film Development Corporation’s Film Bazaar at the Goa International Film Festival to be held from November 20 to 30.

Thithi was the beneficiary of the Work in Progress Lab of Film Bazaar, an exclusive platform that encourages collaboration between international and South Asian film fraternity. Babu Eshwar Prasad’s Gaali Beeja and M.S. Prakash Babu’s Atti Hannu Mattu Kanaja are also products of the Work in Progress Lab. Independent film-makers, who were not aware of Film Bazaar, attended an interaction with Manas Malhotra, co-director, Film Bazaar, organised by the Karnataka Chalanachitra Academy on Monday.

Mr. Malhotra unveiled the facilities, including the coproduction market, viewing room, industry screenings, film offices, exhibition stalls, networking events, branding opportunities, producer’s lab, and screenwriter’s lab and explained the benefits to the Kannada film fraternity.

Film-makers, including Girish Kasaravalli, Mr. Prakash Babu, Mansore, and Dayal, clarified doubts on the various segments of Film Bazaar. Mr. Prakash Babu said: “Films are selected at the rough cut stage in this lab and NFDC agrees to co-produce the film after considering its potential.”
