FICCI’s ‘Frame Your Idea’ holds 3,000 meetings between creatives and producers

MUMBAI: Frame Your Idea (FYI), under the aegis of FICCI Frames, saw over 3,000 meetings between 300 writers/idea owners and over 70 producers/studios/broadcasters as part of FICCI Frames 2016.

These 3,000 meetings were across the categories of film, animation, TV, documentary, and the newly added digital and finished content.

The 70 or so FYI panellists consisted of content teams of producers, directors, studios, broadcasters and content aggregators, looking for that next big idea, story, script or finished content that they would want to grab and put out there.

In 2015, FICCI conceived and executed FYI with the intention to create access for creative minds to pitch their ideas, stories or scripts to content producers.

The forum was unveiled in 2015 at the 16th edition of FICCI Frames, an annual event that serves as a link between the media and entertainment industry and the policy makers.

Last year, out of the 650 meetings between 200 idea owners and 20 content producers (producers/broadcasters/studios), Siddhanta Ashdhir, an engineer turned writer/entrepreneur, and Nihit Bhave, a former journalist, were signed on as screenplay writers by a leading studio and a heavyweight producer. Disney/UTV and Phantom Films were the two players which spotted and picked up the two fresh writers.

In 2016, with the participation of international (Turkey, Nigeria, USA) as well as national creative minds, FYI made itself the only platform in the country of its kind and scale.
