Editor’s Note: 44th Toronto International Film Festival Pickle Sept 2019 Edition

By Pickle  August 31, 2019

We are happy to present the latest issue of Pickle for the delegates at the 44th Toronto International Film Festival and sales and industry representatives. TIFF is unarguably the biggest festival and market in North America.

For India, and now increasingly to South Asia, Toronto has become a hub for discovery of talent. Toronto is a great place to be in especially for young Indian filmmakers who are visibly changing the face of Indian cinema. Being discovered at Toronto opens them a new path to their cinematic techniques and excellence. Toronto leads the global film festival outfits to bring into limelight excellence and best minds in Indian cinema.

This year four Indian films are being screened at TIFF, including The Sky is Pink directed by Shonali Bose (Galas 2019), Moothon (The Elder One) directed by Geetu Mohandas (Special Presentations 2019), Jallikattu directed by Lijo Jose Pellissery (Contemporary World Cinema) and Bombay Rose directed by Gitanjali Rao (Contemporary World Cinema).

The Ministry of Information & Broadcasting, Government of India, in collaboration with  Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) has set up India Stand at the Industry Centre which will provide a platform to popularize Indian cinema in the overseas market and facilitate new business opportunities. The objective is to promote cinemas of India, film locales and services and 50th edition of International Film Festival of India in Goa (November 20-28, 2019). A breakfast session with global producers is slated for September 9.

With this edition, we have changed the masthead of Pickle. It is much leaner with alphabets following smooth lines. The idea is to give ourselves a refreshing brand new look, underscoring our moto to embrace change for the better. We look forward to your views and suggestions on the new mast created by Shruti Remalli.

The Indian media ecosystem is changing fast. The Over-the- Top (OTT) space is gaining attraction in the Indian market with the presence of Hotstar, Voot, ErosNow, ZEE5, Sony Liv, ALT Balaji, Sun Nxt, Amazon Prime and Netflix, which are expanding and growing the market in India.

Pickle’s October print issue will focus and reach out to delegates at MIP Junior and MIPCOM — the world’s biggest audiovisual market at Cannes, France. Feel free to email your thoughts and suggestions.
