20 remarkable South Asian stories will be selected this year. Projects get to pitch their film to the Indian and international film community that attends Film Bazaar with a focus on fiction features.

The pre-requisite of submission states that a film project must be an original story with a South Asian connect and must have a producer attached with 25% of the finance in place. In addition to the above the project must have scope for international co-production, distribution and sales.

Starting this year, the program has gained added leverage with the inclusion of an open forum on pitching. This activity has been introduced based on industry feedback with the intention that filmmakers should not be required to make multiple pitches during meetings.

The forum will be organised a day prior to the start of the Co-production Market and will allow selected participants to pitch their projects to noted industry professionals attending the market. This enables participants to effectively use their time during the one-on-one meetings for more in-depth discussions focused on project specific needs and negotiations.

Nina Lath Gupta, Managing Director, NFDC says, “The Co-Production Market has been and continues to be the most important segment of the Bazaar. The Market allows international producers to understand current trends in cinema from India and the rest of South Asia. With more and more co-productions from India making a mark in international film festivals and box office, and the Co-Production Market offering the best available projects in one place, the market has become a must-attend event for the international producing community.”

In 2014 the Co-Production Market hosted 32 projects from 12 different countries. Click to view 2014 Co-Production Market Selected Projects

Nawazuddin Siddiqui produce film ‘ Miyan Kal Ana ‘ will be travelling to Palm Springs International Film Festival held in Palm Springs, California.
The film directed by his younger brother Shamas Siddiqui was selected in Cannes this year. Unfortunately, Nawaz couldn’t attend the same. However this time around the actor has made sure he takes out time and accompany his brother for the same.


A lot of film are selected in this particular festival however only select 10 get special screening. Nawaz’s film is selected for this special screening from India.

Quote :- I’m very proud as a producer as the film is getting this kind of response.  I would have not thought on making a film but this subject is so relevant and issue based.  Our idea is to highlight the problem which still exists in today’s society.  It’s a proud moment as a brother to see Shamas taking such a bold step of a burning issue like this. It’s a daring step. We look forward for more festival visit and will be making india screening too soon

He has also started yoga with his wife Neha in order to get mental peace and physical balance and Manoj likes doing Surya Namaskar since his school day.


Talking about his fitness funda Manoj Bajpayee says, “I believe in leading a healthy life. For me fitness doesn’t mean to have abs or muscular look but it’s more of exercising daily and eating the right food.  I am not someone who might stay in gym for hours but I certainly believe that one should not ignore his or her health, being an actor it is important that we pay close attention to our health.”
