This is a proposal requesting for someone to speak on this topic. If you’d like to speak, leave a comment.
India produces the largest number of the movies in the world. With such huge numbers, what are the avenues that small budget/alternative & Indie cinema makers have? The difficulties that go into a commercial release could be made easier by promotion through the Film Festival Circuit, screenings to target audience, Direct to home releases or Television rights. Are these really viable options, if so how to go about it?
The route to target the correct Film Festivals, to understand the financials before approaching DTH/TV channels need to be understood in detail and brainstorm of alternate methods.
Speakers could be anyone who have approached - film festivals successfully or unsuccessfully. Or have figured out alternative ways from the many available methods.
