Rohan Sippy: Sky’s The Limit

rohanabhi-father-bigRohan Sippy is a regular visitor at Film Bazaar and he’s been attending the event for the last four years. The director says he learns something new every year. 

What brings him to Bazaar
Storytelling brings me here. It’s a space where you can find all kinds of cinema, from regional, indie, world cinema to even commercial. Everyone is here to get exposure and there is so much talent out there. It’s called ‘Bazaar’ and you don’t know Bazaar mein kya milega but hai bahut kuch jo pasand woh lelo.

Wide options 
Every year, the number of footfalls and initiatives increase. One of the most interesting initiatives is the pitches at the labs. So, you’ve made a film but how do you sell it? There is a pitch session, where they train you on how to present your film. It’s an art that you need to learn in this game, how do you pitch your film to an investor or distributor?

Places like this were non-existent earlier. So Manish Mundra attended a pitch for Newton last year, and the shooting is almost complete. The Lunchbox was developed here, the film which was recognised internationally. The beauty of the Bazaar is you don’t know what connections you will make and the sky is the limit.

On producing 
Right now, I am looking for more scripts and am also developing story ideas. The Bazaar allows me to meet new directors, writers and opens up one’s mind to everything.
