Posted by

Film Bazaar, organised by India’s National Film Development Corp (NFDC), has announced the  20 projects selected for this year’s Co-production Market, which is taking place as an in-person event for the first time since 2019. 

While the projects all have a South Asian connection, many are set up as co-productions with countries including the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Australia, Canada and Japan. 

UK director Michael Radford is co-directing Spanish-Indian co-production The Princess Of Kapurthala with Manuel Estudillo, while Kaushik Ray will direct A Life A Rose, co-produced by France’s BackUp Media and India’s Taran Tantra Telefilms. 

In addition to projects from India, the line-up also includes Nepali filmmaker Machindra Yongya’s Changing Sky and Depth Of Darkness, a Tamil and Malay-language project from Malaysian filmmaker Gogularaajan Rajendran.

“Co-Production Market has been and continues to be the most important segment of the Bazaar,” said NFDC managing director Ravinder Bhakar. “The market allows international producers to understand current trends in cinema from India and South Asia. We are enormously proud of this year’s selection that showcases some of the most diverse, inclusive and ground-breaking stories from Nepal, Malaysia, Japan, Australia, Canada, Germany, France, Spain, UK, USA and India.” 

Film Bazaar is taking place November 20-24 at the Goa Marriott Resort in Goa, India.
