No doubt, SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus Baahubali has many firsts to it. Adding one more feather to its hat, Baahubali is going to be the first Telugu feature film to be screened at the Cannes Market. Both the parts of the film are going to be screened at the ongoing Cannes Film Festival.
Baahubali : The Beginning and Baahubali : The Conclusion are going to be screened at the 70th edition of Cannes International Film Festival in Cannes, France. Corroborating the same, producer Shobu Yarlagadda said that the film would be available at ‘Market’ – a market place.
For starters, the Market – The Marche du Film- is known as the world’s largest movie marketplace where 80 per cent of the film’s business is done there. Distributors of various places in the world look for the next big buy and sales agents representing slates of films can also be found in abundance at the Market. Deals, sales and appointments happen at the market as film is first and foremost a commodity. Badge holders from various countries visit the Market. Distributors, agents, financiers and representatives of top film production companies attend the Market.
And not all films would be screened there. Only few are screened. BB 1 and BB 2 both are going to be screened at the market. The Screening of Baahubali : The Beginning and Baahubali : The Conclusion is expected to further increase the prospects of the business of Baahubali films.
