Film festivals certainly go a long way in promoting independent voices to reach large sections of the people across the world. Unfortunately these are one-off events and more often than not, do not get sustained into the public arena. And that’s because the exhibition sector is primarily geared to handle so-called mainstream films which are also huge in numbers.
In such a situation independent filmmakers need independent screening spaces to showcase their films on a regular basis in the market area of popular culture. This will make the audiences realize that such filmmakers also care for their audiences and at the same time a healthy and parallel business model can also be set up. The panelists will talk about such initiatives happening across the world, the technologies that can enable such circuits to be created and the kind of films that would work well in these spaces.
Panel Members: Mrs. Suhasini Maniratnam, Mr. K. Hariharan, Mr. Kumaraja Tygarajan and Mr. Sudhish Kamath. The session will be moderated by Dr. Uma Vangal.
