‘The Viewing Room’ introduced in the Film Bazaar in 2011, presents films that seek finishing funds, world sales, distribution partners and festivals. Here, programmers, distributors, world sales agents and investors watch complete films, access their details and contact the director or producer. These films are viewed on individual computer terminals in private booths via the specially designed Viewing Room software. The Viewing Room allows access only to buyers, financers, world sales agents and festival programmers.

In 2014, a total of 130 films were presented in the ‘Viewing Room’, with over 30 films under the World Cinema and Available for Remake section. Whereas this year, 156 films in 29 different Indian languages will be presented in fiction and documentaries section which is a clear indication of a 50 % increase in Indian films this year.
