Focus on Spanish delegation at Mumbai Film Mart

With a reputation of being the platform for opening up new non-traditional markets for Indian cinema, the Mumbai Film Mart (MFM), held during the Mumbai Film Festival, is all set to further fuel the business of films. MFM 2013 will be held at Vivanta by Taj President, Cuffe Parade, Colaba between 18-20 October 2013.


Among the numerous initiatives being launched this year, the MFM will welcome and host the official Spanish delegation for co-productions with a delegation from the Spanish Federation of Producers (FAPAE) along with senior decision makers from the Spanish Ministry, Tourism and Film Commission.


As a founder trustee of MAMI, ex-president of the Film & Television Producers Guild of India and ex-chairman of Reliance Entertainment, Amit Khanna said, “As we move towards a global cinema, co-production and collaborative cinema achieve a huge significance. Spain and India share a passion for cinema and make natural partners to work together in the field of cinema and TV for mutual advantage.”


Indian producers, directors, investors and film commissions who may have projects they wish to develop and co-produce in Spain or if keen on co-producing the official delegation's projects set in India, have been invited to register for the Mumbai Film Mart and attend a special presentation on 18 October followed by one-to-one meetings over the next two days at the MFM.


Speaking on the same, MFF festival director Srinivasan Narayanan said, “Our aim with this initiative is to foster greater cultural and cinematic ties with Spain through an exchange of ideas between the visiting Spanish producers and film commissioners with their Indian counterparts.”

Additionally, registered MFM delegates will have the opportunity to promote, meet and interact with leading global buyers, broadcasters, exhibitors, festival programmers, producers and sales agents amongst others. As an added advantage, MFM delegates can submit DVDs of up to four projects to 'The Filmy Room', an exclusive viewing facility accessible to the invited guests and buyers of the MFM.
