Project Indywood seeks to unite the fragmented Indian regional film under one umbrella, INDYWOOD.
India ranks top in terms of theatrical admissions and the number of films produced every year. But the Indian
film industry lags behind in terms of revenue generation and achieving global recognition. This is due to the
fragmentation of the film industry on the basis of language and geographical barriers within the country.
Conceptualized by Sohan Roy, a globally acclaimed film director, producer, exhibitor, writer and project
designer, Indywood envisages revolutionary changes in production, screening and marketing strategies, as well
as a new outlook to the business model of Indian cinema.
A proven leader credited with pioneering innovations in the Maritime, Medical, Movie and Media industries,
Sohan Roy’s vision for the successful completion of the project is expected to elevate India as a global hub of
the film industry.
As part of the $10 billion Indywood Project’s mission, new avenues of marketing for Indian cinema
will be explored, by strengthening local and overseas distribution channels. The promotion and sale
of regional content in the international market, exchange of local technologies and manpower, global
networking of major production houses and collaborative ventures making use of local talents, are
some of the key aspects of the project.
