Continuing the last year’s format for the event where the filmmakers gave insights, talked openly about their successes and failures, the mistakes they made and the lessons they learnt; the event aims at ensuring that the invitees would gain enough knowledge.


“Bollywood is in my blood and my passion however the event is not restricted to song dance or action, it is beyond that. I love dhinchak sequences from Bollywood, larger than life visuals of Hollywood and Pakistani music. We are audiences who like content and for us entertainment isn’t restricted to countries and their boundaries. Redefining world cinema is what we aim at. Thanks to my brother Ajay Shrivastav (New York) who took this initiative,” said Kiren Shrivastav, CEO Molecule Communications.


This three- day event would focus on the global influence of Indian cinema, forecast changes in the fast growing and rapidly evolving filmmaking industry. Actors, directors, writers and music directors would gather to share how it is to make cinema by blending different cultures and to bring them beyond the Indian Diaspora.

Excited about this conference, Madhur said, “Indian cinema is no more limited to audiences in India. We have viewers all around the world and hence understanding the global perspective is a must. Molecule Communications’ Cinema Beyond Boundaries would get the viewers and the filmmakers together and would help us in serving them with good quality cinema.”


As Indian cinema celebrates its 100 years of existence, Cinema Beyond Boundaries (CBB) would capture the flavours of Bollywood, take a look at the past and discuss what would be in store for Indian cinema in the next 100 years. CBB would focus on screenwriting trends, co- production opportunities and international film financing to connect the world’s most important film industries.


“Whether on-screen or over the airwaves, SAG-AFTRA members bring to life unique experiences and perspectives and share universal truths with a global audience,” said national director of equal employment opportunities and diversity Adam Moore from SAG-AFTRA which is the sponsor and partner for the event along with The School of Visual Arts (SVA).


“These projects should accurately reflect the entire world around us and depict all of our communities in authentic and meaningful ways. So the opportunity to work with Molecule Communications for Ticket2Bollywod: Cinema Beyond Boundaries to achieve our mutual goal of telling these stories by utilizing union talent and union agreements is a perfect fit,” he added.
