Cine Bazaar

Film Market for Young Filmmakers

This year, Alpavirama will be launching the Cine Bazaar, a marketplace for filmmakers to present their works (in any stage of development) to producers, production houses and streaming platforms. This will facilitate young filmmakers to have their projects funded by producers, learn the economics of the filmmaking process and to pitch their films. The most promising projects will receive the Alpavirama Project Development Fund 2022. We look forward to receiving your submissions in any stage of production.
