Producers Lab is a segment that was introduced at the 2013 edition of Film Bazaar. The aim of the Lab is to provide training and networking opportunities to upcoming producers from across the world.

Ritesh SidhwaniSpread over five days, the lab involves multiple sessions on the different facets of producing films, conducted by key industry experts and professionals. In previous years, sessions have been focused on the role of a producer, the development process of a film, raising finances, international co-productions, international sales, and alternative marketing and distribution platforms.

The end “deliverable” and take-away for each participant at the end of the Lab will be a pitch session of their own project presented in front of a panel of three mentors.


Preparing to PitchThe idea of embedding the Lab within the Film Bazaar dates is to mix the experience of high quality and intense training and guidance and exposure to South Asia’s top film market space. At the end of each day, there will be a networking cocktail that will be attended by all the delegates attending Film Bazaar.
