The Co-Production Market provides a platform for carefully curated projects with South Asian themes to find financial, artistic and creative support.

Every year, filmmakers with selected projects get numerous avenues to connect with Indian and International producers/distributors, Sales Agents, Film Festival Programmers and Film Commissions, among others.

In the 10th year, 20 projects will participate in the Market.

“For me the core of Film Bazaar is the Co- Production, the one-on-one meetings which is an internationally recognized format and it is absolutely the strength of the market.”


Nov 20th – An Orientation Session is held to familiarize the selected filmmakers with the tools of pitching, presenting and navigating the Co-Production Market.

Nov 21th – At the Open Pitch, participants present their projects to an audience of industry professionals. The Open Pitch ensures that participants can optimise their time at the market, and focus on project specific details and goals during the one-on-one meetings.

Nov 21th to Nov 24th – One-on-one meetings are scheduled for each selected project.
