Benegal has been making award-winning films since the 1970s – most recently satires Welcome To Sajjanpur and Well Done Abba. Singh’s Qissa: The Tale Of A Lonely Ghost is currently having a successful run on the festival circuit.

International projects at Film Bazaar include Amok, from Chilean director Valeria Sarmiento and produced by the UK’s Anna Holburn; UK filmmaker Robert Mullan’s Son Of India; Malabar Court, directed by Niara Modi and produced by Canada’s Paul Scherzer; and Polish director Piotr Trzaskalski’s Incredible.

The line-up also include one project in partnership with the Netherlands’ Boost programme, Bikas Mishra’s Wild Fire, and one project with IFP, Varenya directed by Shripriya Mahesh.

Organised by the National Film Development Corp (NFDC), Film Bazaar will also host Screenwriters Lab, Work-in-Progress Lab, Primexchange and the inaugural edition of Producers Lab, aimed at aspiring Indian producers.
