Looking for a platform to pitch your stories or concepts for films, illustrations, music compositions, collaborations, audio books, audio-visuals, or other creative ideas?

You have the chance to talk about that amazing idea and pitch it to the literary minds of the audience including film makers and artists at the Kolkata Carnival. Not only can you find someone willing to make your idea a reality, you can also find talented people willing  to work you on your idea and take it a step further to the execution!

Let your ideas and thoughts give you inspiration. All creativity comes from your imagination - you first imagine and then you create.
