Registrations open for the 3rd Mumbai Film Mart 2013

Mumbai: Indian cinema, replete with our culture, aspirations and current trends is a craze not only in India but also abroad. Helping Indian films transcend their geographical boundaries and reach out to newer audiences over the last two years is the Mumbai Film Mart (MFM). Held during the Mumbai Film Festival, the MFM is a B2B platform that connects filmmakers, producers, 

distributors, buyers, sales agents and broadcasters from India and territories across the globe.

Registrations are open for the 3rdMumbai Film Mart to be held from 18th – 20th October 2013 at the Trident Hotel, Nariman Point, Mumbai. The Mumbai Film Mart has enjoyed the patronage of some of the biggest International Buyers & Sellers, especially from non-traditional markets like Japan, Taiwan, S. Korea, Sweden, France and Brazil with many visiting India for the first time. Growing global interest in Indian films is attracting many more reputed companies to confirm attendance at MFM 2013.

Booths and SPOTS are available for scheduled meeting spaces with display ability as well as online delegate profiles, pre-scheduled meeting facilities for paid registrants and many networking opportunities.

One of the many highlights of the Mumbai Film Mart is the successful outcome of meetings held during a maiden visit by the leading distributor in Japan, Nikkatsu Corp., with the record-breaking theatrical release of ‘3 Idiots’ across Japan, grossing over 1 million US dollars with over 90,000 admissions and still being screened. The film collections have surpassed ‘Robot’, so far the most popular Indian film with the Japanese audiences.

With more than 1200 meetings scheduled during the course of 3 days, the number of interactions facilitated at MFM 2012 was thrice as much as in the first year, with even more fruitful cinematic exchanges expected this year.

Commenting on the MFM 2013 registration, Mumbai Film Festival Director, Mr. Srinivasan Narayanan said, “Mumbai Film Festival, through its Mumbai Film Mart initiative, is focused on providing a robust networking platform for film professionals from all over the world to

promote their films and services at all stages - completed films, under-production projects and those in concept stage.”

Ms. Rashmi Lamba, Manager, Mumbai Film Mart said,” It is our immense pleasure to kick off the registration process for the 3rd MFM, facilitating the coming together of members of the film industry from around the world. We sincerely hope that this year the entries will be greater than before, enabling MFM 2013 to play its part for the continued global spread of Indian cinema.”
