Discussing the Companies to Sell Your Film in India, All the filmmakers are always wondering, WHAT? after making/completing a Film. Especially, with new or Indie ones.
In other words, It has always been a tough task for any Filmmaker to market his Film and put to its Best. It takes years to make a Film and then years to Sell it or earn something from it.
Nothing is best than the practical situations and here it is! “Umakant Pandey Purush Ya…..?” was released on 1st Feb 2019 and it’s been more than 1 year and we could not find our buyer yet!
It is really important that we talk about the kind of efforts which we have taken to fulfil this Target otherwise, we will also be like those who just find flows in the system and never focus on their efforts or shortcomings.
After doing all the search and studies we got some ideas of which are the companies to approach to Sell your film in India before the release of “Umakant Pandey Purush Ya…..?” itself. Adding on, We did contact some of them before Release asking if they can buy our film.
However, They say that Film should be released in Cinemas then only they buy it. just after that, the film was released on 1st February 2019, we started reaching these companies. In India, there are a few major content buying companies which buy Film or Content if fits their criteria of Acquisition of the Content.
Shemaroo and Ultra are the companies to Sell Your Film in India which are the biggest content buyers in India as of now. For instance, They deal with Amazon Prime Video, YouTube, iTunes, Reliance Jio, Vodafone, Tata Sky, Hotstar, etc. Shemaroo has offices in Mumbai, New Delhi and New Jersey. Ultra Media & Entertainment has its Head office In Mumbai.
Our Film “Umakant Pandey Purush Ya…..?” has been applied in these big companies and to a few others too. For instance, Filmkarwaan and more. We are in wait of their positive response to be part of any of these platforms or their own.
Waiting to achieve our Target is the real struggle and learning process. In conclusion, We will be keep learning and updating our Audiences and Supporters of Indie filmmakers about our progress in achieving this Target.
