After the very successful edition in 2019, Indywood Talent Hunt International 2020 will be conducted online this year due to the struggling scenario caused by the pandemic. Indywood Talent Hunt is organized with an outlook to identify young talents and guide them properly to choose their career at the campus/school level. It also provides an opportunity for the shortlisted ones to get exposed to the Film Industry via Indywood. It has always been a roaring success in all the conducted years. The 2019 edition witnessed around 2000 finalists with an overall reach of 2 million.
Indywood Talent Hunt is a part of Project Indywood, an ambitious USD10 Billion project that envisions to brand Indian Movies globally and to establish India as the venue for the largest Investor friendly market in the world. During the announcement of the 6th edition of this famous talent scout, Dr. Sohan Roy, Founder of Project Indywood, stated that “We have been organizing Indywood Talent Hunt since 2015, and it has been an extremely overwhelming journey. ITH has witnessed a record of 20k+ participants & achieved 215 placements into the entertainment industry in the last 5 years. Through this event, our aim is to identify talented young Indians and guide them properly to choose their career at the campus/school level into varied fields of the entertainment industry, be it fashion, acting, music, director, etc. I firmly believe only the youth of tomorrow can make a possible revolutionary change in the industry. Hence it is our moral responsibility to identify, support, and provide them with the necessary exposure and opportunities which they truly deserve.”
The International Cultural Fiesta is ready to gear up the new standard online edition picking up the most recommended categories, including music, dance, art, acting, and social media.
