‘Gurgaon,’ ‘Machines’ win India’s Film Bazaar

GOA — Award winning Indian cinematographer Shanker Raman’s directorial debut “Gurgaon” won the fiction award at the National Film Development Corporation’s Film Bazaar in Goa. Rahul Jain’s “Machines” won the documentary award.

Both projects were part of the Bazaar’s Work in Progress lab. Both win free digital intermediate post-production packages from Prasad Labs.

“It is a hardcore independent film that was difficult to fund and produce. This lab particularly has been valuable for me to cause that shift where I know that the film is accessible to everybody,” Raman told Variety.

Gurgaon,” a modern noir thriller, is produced by Ajay Rai and Alan McAlex’s Jar Pictures (“Liar’s Dice”.)

“It is appreciable that such a film is coming to light. I hope that people get to see it,” Jain told Variety. Jain describes the documentary as “a sensory experience set in a factory.”

Film Bazaar took place Nov. 20 – 24. Buyers this year included Fortissimo, Focus Features, Magnolia Pictures, Samuel Goldwyn Films, Shoreline Entertainment, Filmbuff, Zeitgeist Films, and Wild Bunch.

Representatives of several top festivals including Cannes, Berlin, London, Tribeca and Busan were at also at the Bazaar’s viewing room scouting for titles.
