This workshop is an initiative by Life Entertainment, Germany & MAMI (Mumbai Academy of Moving Images), India. The nine projects were selected from 100 submissions received. They contain an Indo-German cultural conflict or a local Indian story which might connect to a German Audience.
In September 2012, a jury will choose the best projects; those then will be awarded at the 14th Mumbai Film Festival in October 2012.
The nine projects are:
‘Holy Hair’ by Monika Sandmann (Drama/Comedy),
‘Learning To Fly’ by Sonia Bahl (Drama, Sport),
‘The Hanged Man’ by Megha Subramanian (Romantic Comedy),
