    FICCI Frames 2023 | The Challenge of Being an Indian Screenwriter

    • 04.05.2023
    • By Creative First

    In terms of professional opportunities, screenwriters have perhaps never had it so good. Feature filMs., OTT shows, TV serials, reality shows, short films, documentaries, micro shorts… The money has improved too. And yet, there are serious complaints. Unfair contracts, harsh indemnity clauses, lack of assurance of credit, fees not good enough, endless wait for royalties, fear of extra-constitutional backlash.

    So, how are writers negotiating these challenges? Are they dampening their creative spirit? Is a resolution to these problems in sight?
