Two alumni feature projects selected for Gotham Week Project Market

Gotham Week Project Market
Congratulations to Hedyeh Bozorgzadeh (NSI Business for Producers), Christine Falco (NSI Drama Prize) and Gharrett Patrick Paon (NSI Features First) who will showcase their projects at the 2021 Gotham Week Project Market.

Gotham Week Project Market is an international forum designed to connect developing projects to key executives interested in identifying projects for development, financing or distribution.

Brother, Man, written and produced by Hedyeh Bozorgzadeh and produced by Christine Falco, follows a 16-year-old war refugee who flees Angola for Canada. He finds a home and a talent as a track runner, but guilt and the threat of deportation are present in the shadows.

Me, My Mom, & Sharmila, produced by Gharrett Patrick Paon, tells the story of a lesbian daughter and traditional Muslim mother against the backdrop of their shared love for a Bollywood heroine. This story is inspired by director Fawzia Mirza’s one-woman play of the same name.

The virtual market runs from September 19 to 24, where creators will form relationships with distributors, financers, production companies and more.
