Panaji: Actor Aamir Khan’s production house will look for interesting projects at NFDC Film Bazaar from next year.
The 51-year-old actor’s wife Kiran Rao announced this during her visit here.
“Film Bazaar has brought the whole film community together. It’s a fantastic and much needed annual event. Next year, Aamir Khan Productions will be here. And we hope to look for projects here, meet people and get talent,” she said.
A producer and a director herself, Rao feels that independent filmmakers should be given a chance to show their potential.
“This was the most necessary intervention for Indian cinema, the film Bazaar that now is. It has changed the landscape of how films are made, distributed, bringing the film community together. So, I’m really excited about it.
“I came to see the Viewing Room which is such a great resource that Deepti (DCunha), Programmer of WIP and Viewing Room) has created,” she said.
The four-day festival has more than 20 Knowledge series sessions in which veteran filmmakers and producers speak on various aspects of the cinema.
Indian celebrities who have so far attended Bazaar include the likes of Imtiaz Ali, Rohan Sippy, Ramesh Sippy, Prakash Jha, Shabana Azmi, Tannishtha Chatterjee and Sudhir Mishra.
