The Viewing Room presents films from India and South Asia, which are complete or in post-production, to the international market. These films are looking for film festivals, world sales, distribution partners and also finishing funds.
The Viewing Room at NFDC Film Bazaar Online in Jan. 2021 was accessible around-the-clock to registered film professionals worldwide who could log in easily from their home countries. This safe, encrypted and piracy-free platform provided visibility to over 200 films in the first ever online-only edition. The Viewing Room at Film Bazaar 2021 will be similarly held online in November 2021.
Viewing Room is a highly restricted zone which connects Sellers (filmmakers) with Buyers (film programmers, distributors, world sales agents and investors) from around the world. Buyers will be able to access details about the films as well as contact the filmmakers through the specially designed Viewing Room Software.
To create a more user-friendly experience, buyers can choose to view the films / film clips on the basis of parameters like duration, language, stage of completion, type and festival history, among others.
Several films which have gone on to have successful film festival journeys have been first discovered at the Viewing Room of NFDC Film Bazaar.
