The Viewing Room at the NFDC Film Bazaar Goa, presents films from India and South Asia, which are recently completed or still in post-production.These films are looking for film festivals, world sales, distribution partners and also finishing funds.
Viewing Room connects Sellers (filmmakers) with Buyers (film programmers, distributors, world sales agents and investors) from around the world. Buyers are able to watch the films, access details about the films as well as contact the filmmakers through the specially designed Viewing Room Software. This is a highly restricted zone with the aim of making it a safe space for filmmakers who submit their unreleased films.
