The pay-per-view indie-focused OTT platform is promising to add one new film to its slate every Friday beginning 9 April.

Several OTT (over-the-top) platforms have entered the Indian market in the past few years. However, few focus on independent cinema. Often unable to afford the budgets required for marketing and a theatrical release, independent films have traditionally been screened mainly at festivals. And if you miss a film there, it is quite difficult to find it again.
The pay-per-view OTT platform Cinemapreneur has announced its slate of films that will be released in the month of April. The list includes Jeo Baby’s Malayalam feature The Great Indian Kitchen (2021), which has received rave reviews and is being touted as “the breakout film of the year”, and Tanuja Chandra’s insightful documentary Aunty Sudha Aunty Radha (2021), which has been screened at several festivals.
The offering includes the socio-political drama Vilom (2021), which marks the directorial debut of Sunder Pal; the Indo-US collaboration Across The Ocean directed by Nicole Donadio and Uma Kumarapuram; and Christoph Pohl’s documentary about a 50 years young tropical forest in Auroville, Ever Slow Green.
The films will be released across the month, one every week, beginning with Aunty Sudha Aunty Radha on 9 April.
With the intention of bringing the best of Indian independent cinema to the home audience, Cinemapreneur allows viewers to directly watch a film by paying for it on the platform.
