Tracey will sit on a “SHOOTING IN INDIA” panel, part of the Mhindra Indo-American Arts Council (MIAAC) Film Festival.
India is home to the world s largest film industry as well as one of the fastest growing economies in the world. Non-Indian filmmakers across the globe are flocking to take advantage of India s hospitality, its “cheap” sets and its varied locations. However, filming in India can be a challenge. How, when, where, who can help, what are the rules? Some of the most successful producers from both the US and India will address questions that US filmmakers have about shooting and producing in India, including financing structures, rules and regulations, artistic talent, technical facilities and crew. Producer Lydia Dean Pilcher (The Darjeeling Express, The Namesake), founder of Cine Mosaic; Tracey Jackson, producer (Lucky Ducks) and screenwriter (The Guru, The Ivy Chronicles); Aanand Mahendroo, producer of Colours of Passion and Managing Director of Infinity Film Completion Services; and Apoorva Lakhia, director of Shootout at Lokhandwala will be on a panel moderated by Parvez Sharma, producer-director of A Jihad for Love.
The Indo-American Arts Council (IAAC) is a 501©3 not-for-profit arts organization passionately dedicated to promoting, showcasing and building an awareness of Indian artists in the performing arts, visual arts, and literary arts.
