The Media and Entertainment Industry in India is a $20 Billion industry. Growing digitization, media consumption and improving demographics are the most important drivers responsible for the growth of this industry. The Indian films are becoming bigger and the international audiences are accepting them more than before. More and more countries are releasing the Indian films and their consumption is increasing.
There are over 30 Million Indians living outside of India out of which approximately 3 Million are living in USA. These NRI audiences love to watch Indian films and are ready to pay for watching these films.
In 2011, there were 107 bollywood movies released out of which 5 films entered the list of "highest grossing Bollywood films ever". The number of Bollywood films released every year keeps increasing and as of now there are 121 films scheduled for release in 2012. The major studios like Yash Raj Films, Reliance, Eros, Dharma Productions etc release a major chunk of these big films.
We represent the films of Yash Raj Films (YRF). They have to their credit India’s most enviable film catalog. Some of their films have been the highest grossers in the entertainment business.
The Indian film industry is blessed with magnificent filmmakers like Shyam Benegal, Santosh Sivan, Anurag Kashyap etc who are well known for making award winning films. Their films get a very limited release and the films do not reach the masses. There are very few companies in India that promote the independent Indian cinema like IDream Independent Pictures.
There are around 1000 films produced each year in India out of which only 10% to 15% get a release. The international distribution is limited to the studio films. The producers do not have a passage to spread their films worldwide. Vista India Digital Media strides to provide a gateway to the producers in the international market. We have our relationships with the major digital and DVD distributors internationally and we provide technical and content support.
