Filmmaker Anurag Basu will share his knowledge and experience about the process of turning a screenplay into a movie, as he did with BARFI - the official Indian entry for the Academy Awards 2013, and the opening movie of the IndoGerman Filmweek on February 5th, 2013.

The movies BARFI!, ENGLISH VINGLISH, SHANGHAI and INKAAR will be screened in the presence of their respective directors as German premieres; apart from that eleven more films during the IndoGerman Filmweek from February 5th to 11th, 2013 will be shown.

In detail, growth rates of 57% for the extension of web, 15, 7% for TV and 9,4% for cinema services are expected.

Highly regarded experts of the Indian and German media business will discuss business strategies and perspectives the Indian media market offers; they will talk about basics of cooperation in digital media, in film, and new story ideas.
