By Pickle  August 31, 2019

NFDC organises the Film Bazaar from the 20 – 24 November, every year at the Goa Marriott Resort. South Asia’s global Film Market, the Film Bazaar is a platform exclusively created to encourage collaboration between the international and South Asian film fraternity.

Film Bazaar has evolved into a one-stop shop for filmmakers, producers, sales agents, distributors, film festival programmers and financiers from around the world; a marketplace that encourages collaboration between the South Asian and international film fraternities.

In 2018, the market showcased 19 South Asian projects from 7 countries.

The Co-Production Market will be held between 20 – 24th November, 2019 at Film Bazaar, Goa.

The Viewing Room allows access only to buyers, financiers, world sales agents and festival programmers.

FILM OFFICES

Introduced in 2014, Film Offices, provide State Tourism bodies a platform to showcase their locations and incentives to filmmakers attending Film Bazaar.

Since Film Bazaar is attended by directors, producers, financiers, distributors, sales agents and film festival programmers from across the world, Film Offices is a great opportunity for Tourism bodies to connect with the Indian and International film fraternity. It brings to filmmakers the world of picturesque locations from across India, that would fit into their scripts and add value to their films. The aim is to ensure that the Film Offices are able to pitch their locations to all leading filmmakers.

The Film Offices connect the State Governments with industry stakeholders such as Indian and International Producers, Indian Directors and Industry Executives from India and abroad, through structured meetings and participation in the Knowledge Series. The States through their Film Offices, highlight their film policy and their endeavor to make filming a smooth affair, showcase their locations and acquaint the filmmakers and the fraternity about the incentives/rebates/subsisdies offered for filming in their respective jurisdictions. The Industry on the other hand, gets an opportunity to sensitize the State Governments with regard to the to the needs of the film industry, the various challenges faced by them during filming in locations and the consequent economic impact that film shootings have on the local economy.

This initiative, is in collaboration with the Film Facilitation Office and is of mutual benefit to both the filmmaker and the State.
