Open Plan

Today I was honoured to be on a panel discussing "How to Pitch in International and Domestic Markets" along with wildlife cinematographer Nalla Mutthu and filmmaker Sanjay Bernala (INFO).  We discussed finding an audience for "issue-based" films, financing documentaries and a growing number of people who believe content should be free and internet-based (think YouTube).  The challenges filmmakers all over the world face know no borders.

The 7th CMS VATAVARAN Environment and Wildlife Film Festival and Forum has taken over all of the 27 acres of Ignca Lawns in New Delhi.  Of all the film festivals I have been to over the past year, the screening venues here are the most gorgeous. And there aren't even any walls.
