The 14th edition of the National Film Development Corporation (NFDC) Film Bazaar Online 2020, scheduled to be held from 20–24 November 2020 alongside the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) 2020, has been postponed to 16–21 January 2021.
The change in dates was made after the 51st edition of IFFI was rescheduled to be held from 16–24 January 2021 in Goa.
Film Bazaar is the largest South Asian film market and encourages creative and financial collaboration between the South Asian and International film communities.
This edition of the Film Bazaar will be held in a hybrid format with virtual and on-ground screenings. However, it will include all the sections usually held in previous editions.
TCA Kalyani, joint secretary in the Union ministry of information and broadcasting and managing director of NFDC, said, “This will be a step up for Film Bazaar as it will be more inclusive and its reach will be global. We are hoping the virtual edition will see more people as the fabric of Film Bazaar is intact.”
The call for entries for the Film Bazaar is open for submissions for the co-production market, WIP Lab (fiction only) and Viewing Room (fiction/documentary/animation/shorts). Feature-length fiction films in the rough cut are eligible to apply to both the WIP Lab and Viewing Room.
