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.
We believe great storytelling has the power to boost cultural and creative growth in people’s lives thus protecting the soul of a nation.
We want to help upcoming screenwriters in India discover the art and science of screenwriting so that their stories can travel across spaces, time and can leave an impact
