The Busan International Film Festival is coming up soon and Basil Content Media have announced the lucky participants that they will sponsor for a four day networking and learning initiative during the event that will be held between October 14 to 18. The five chosen participants are FTII graduates Piyush Dinkar Thakur (Kyoto Filmmakers Lab [scholarship] winner) and Heer Ganjwala (Producer – Ralang Road), along with Marathi filmmaker-producer Gargi Kulkarni, Malayalam filmmaker Vidhu Vincent and Documentary filmmaker Antariksh Jain.
The final participants have been selected from over 120 applications. Talking about these first and second time filmmakers who will go to Platform Busan, Founder of Basil Content Media, Vivek Kajaria said, “It is heartening to see such amazing talent all around and such strong applications. Unfortunately we could only sponsor and send 5 and we are happy that these filmmakers selected also represent some of the best talent in our country. Here’s hoping they are able to make use of the platform that Busan film festival provides in their respective careers.”
