Who are we?
We are Asia’s Largest Content Festival! With an interactive platform for content creators across cinema, literature, music, and storytelling, we are evolving every second to create curated content and garner attention. With a stellar reach in household names in the film industry and various MNCs, we innovate stimulating challenges to keep audiences and partners captivated.
We started our journey in 2011 with 600 participants and over the years, we have grown to over 55,000 participants and delegates in our last season. Initially, we only started with the 50 Hour Filmmaking Challenge but now not only have we become a unique festival for aspiring creators but also a global community with a very strong creative presence. With a wide range of challenges for the entire creator community, from storytelling and design to scriptwriting and music, we believe in empowering all aspiring artists by giving them a platform to compete and showcase their talent to the world. Many of our past participants have used these challenges as a tool to kick-start their career and are now working as filmmakers, editors, writers, etc. in the industry. Some of the most prominent people to visit India Film Project in the past include Ketan Mehta, Sudhir Mishra, Ram Madhvani, Madhur Bhandarkar, Sriram Raghavan, Nagesh Kukunoor, Shyam Benegal, Ayushmann Khurrana, Hansal Mehta, Javed Akhtar, Naseeruddin Shah, Rajkumar Rao, and many more!
