Sessions

AUGUST 1, 1200-1330 hours

WRITERS Vs. PRODUCERS: CAN THEY NEVER BE ALLIES?

Focus: By their very definitions, art and commerce seem to be locked in a perpetual conflict. One aims to unearth hidden truths, break new ground, whereas the other seeks to profit by pleasing the audience, by not disturbing status quo. The writer is considered a natural rebel, the producer, an establishmentarian. Ergo, the relationship seems riddled with tensions, anxieties and suspicions. And, yet, neither can survive without the other. So, can we at least understand each other’s point-of-view?

Moderator

AUGUST 1, 1430-1600 hours

BLURRED LINES BETWEEN HISTORY, MYTHOLOGY & FANTASY

Focus: Indian Cinema began its journey with Raja Harishchandra, a Mythology. For television, the stories from past have always drawn big bucks, but how does one differentiate between History, Mythology, Fantasy and Folklore as it has all got mixed up in our stories. Do the writers have liberty to create a concoction in a society that is already confused about what is History and what is Mythology/Fantasy? Where do you draw a Lakshaman Rekha?

AUGUST 1, 1630-1800 hours

BETWEEN THE HITS

Focus: Marathi and Gujarati film industries have seen a robust growth in last two decades, as evidenced by the booming box office numbers, and the sheer number of films made every year.

What’s the reality of the silence between the hits? And how can we break through?

AUGUST 2, 1630-1800 hours

WHERE ARE THE NEW VOICES IN TELEVISION?

Focus: Newer breed of writers are also spewing the same old content. In fact they almost seem like by-products of the last one decade of television lacking any new contemporary creative insight or approach.
