WWI alumni's film to represent India at MPA CICE film workshop

MUMBAI: Further to Motion Picture Distributors Association India (MPDA) entering into a pact with Whistling Woods International (WWI) in August last year to identify a promising new filmmaker to attend the MPA CICE Film Workshop, WWI alumni Aarambh Singh‘s film Rosebed has been selected to represent India at the workshop by a jury comprising elite film makers.

The MPA CICE Film Workshop, presented by the Motion Picture Association (MPA) Asia Pacific and the China International Copyright Expo (CICE), provided a master class on a range of contemporary topics on filmmaking. The workshop also endeavoured to provide an opportunity for filmmakers to develop their careers, build networks and potentially collaborate on new projects.

Singh said, "I wouldn‘t have received a better award than to learn in person from the eminent filmmakers at MPA CICE Film workshop. I thank MPA for this opportunity and also Sony to sponsor my trip to make this possible. It was my first International exposure and I am grateful to my Institute Whistling Woods International, whose focus is on preparing us for national as well as international platform by bringing Masters from across the border to train us. I am glad that finally all our hard work has resulted in wonderful opportunity."

Rosebed, a Meeta Vasisht starrer, revolves around an Opera singer, a single lady in her late 30s and her ongoing battle with her bed which is a constant reminder of her isolated single self.

WWI president Meghna Ghai Puri said, "I am delighted and happy for Aarambh. He has been given an excellent opportunity and a talented film maker like himself absolutely deserves it."

MPDA managing director Uday Singh said, "MPDA- India will continue to create similar opportunities for emerging talent in India. A platform like the MPA- CICE Film workshop gives deserving talent the much needed exposure on screenwriting, filmmaking, film marketing and film distribution. We are very glad to have associated with Whistling Woods International in taking forward this initiative."

CICE is the premier international copyright industry forum and trade show in China, held annually since 2008. Next year, the Expo will focus on the promotion and protection of film and television content. The MPA Asia Pacific has hosted film workshops since 2006, providing stepping-stones for emerging filmmakers to develop their careers.
