In the meanwhile, NFDC has also announced five projects of its Work-In-Progress Lab programme, of which four are part of the Market Recommendations. The Work-in-Progress Lab gives five filmmakers a chance to have their rough-cut feature length films viewed by a panel of international advisors who have a one-on-one discussion with the filmmaker with an intention to help the filmmaker achieve an accomplished final cut of the film.

Apart from Titli, Margarita, With A Straw, Attihannu Mattu Kanaja, and the Bangladeshi Under Construction, the other finalist in the Lab is Killa by director Avinash Arun in Marathi.

Of the above, Kanu Behl’s Titli produced by Dibakar Banerjee was a part of the sixth edition of NFDC Film Bazaar’s Screenwriters’ Lab and Co-production Market 2012. Yash Raj Films came on board later as a co-producer of the film.

The mentors of the lab this year are: Rome Film Festival artistic director Marco Mueller; British Film Critic and Historian Derek Malcolm; chairman of ADEF and Rezo Films Laurent Danielou;  and acclaimed producer and script consultant Philippa Campbell.

No takers for films sans merit or promotion

The drought continues despite a number of new films releasing. The thing is, the films released in last three weeks lacked in face value and promotion.
