PANAJI: The National Film Development Corporation (NFDC) will, this year too, organise a co-production market as part of “Film Bazaar India' 10,” a film market specially designed for film-makers, alongside the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) in Goa.
The initiative aims to offer selected filmmakers an opportunity to present their feature film projects (in all languages and at any stage of production) to co-producers, bankers, funds, sales agents, distributors, TV stations and other potential financiers from India and abroad.
The co-production market at the Film Bazaar presents feature-length (75 minutes or more) fiction projects based on Indian stories. These selected projects receive the opportunity to be pitched by their representatives to potential collaborators for finance, distribution and artistic support through one-to-one meetings.
NFDC has invited applications from film-makers to participate in co-production market if seeking international partners in any aspect (e.g. locations, composers, artists or technicians) and if an experienced filmmaker is looking forward to reaching world cinema markets/audiences.
Qualification to apply
A film-maker can apply if the film qualifies for co-production status under one of the international co-production treaties signed by India.
The Film Bazaar selection committee would screen the applications and select deserving 10 projects for the 2010 edition. Applications would be accepted till September 30, 2010 at the Corporation offices, said an official release of the NFDC issued on Wednesday.
The main criterion for selection is that the film must be original, authentic and balance an Indian story with a universal theme. Films at the stages of anywhere between development, preproduction or production, as long as there is a producer attached to the project, are eligible to apply.
The Film Bazaar is only open for feature-length fiction (75 minutes and above) and non-fiction films with potential for theatrical distribution. Short film or TV documentary submissions will not be accepted. Only projects intended for theatrical release will be accepted for the co-production market.
All applications must be posted / couriered / hand- delivered to any of the NFDC offices addressed to “Film Bazaar Co-production Market 2010.”
For further information and to download the application form, one can log on to www.filmbazaarindia.com, said the release.
