× Screenwriting Lab 1 - 2022-23 Screenwriting Lab 2 - 2023-24 (Applications Closed) Bootcamp Alumni About Writers INK

We love stories that can entertain us while leaving us with an important message that can alter the way we look at life.

Films like ‘Taare Zameen Par’ helped us understand the world of a dyslexic child, ‘Sairat’, ‘Jai Bhim’ and ‘Pariyerum Perumal’’ threw light upon the underlying caste discrimination in society, ‘Piku’ redefined the modern, Indian woman for us, ‘Margarita with a straw’ raised relevant questions about women's disability and sexuality in India and ‘Mandela’ uses political satire to help us understand the importance of a vote in a democracy.

We believe that such stories can nourish a society and boost cultural, creative and economic growth. But this is only possible by building a solid foundation of great storytelling.
