The Gujarati film industry is booming with a fresh wave of artists and scripts revolving around modern life in Gujarat. After notable movies like Be Yaar, Chello Divas, Reva, and the Gujju Bhai series, the Gujarati movie industry is fast becoming a major regional cinema hub in India. There are three major changes made by every reputed film production house:

  1. After the golden era of Gujarati cinema in the ’70s, a wave of neo-urban movies resonate with today’s youth and have sparked interest in regional movies.
  2. A lot of new faces have established themselves as Gujarati film industries actors, bringing fresh talent to support contemporary storytelling.
  3. The development for distribution and funding of regional films has developed significantly in the last 3-4 years.

Affix film production house is one of the emerging names in the industry that has capitalized upon Gujarat’s changing ecosystem. We are planning to come up with many projects that should appeal to diverse audiences with fresh scripts. As a Gujarati film production house, there are many challenges in front of us. For instance, an interview of Abhishek Jain is doing rounds on social media, where he discusses the fact that marketing music from Dhollywood films is challenged by both local television channels and radio stations. This is the same for distribution and marketing.

Thus we have focused on these challenges right from the beginning of our journey and our formal inception as Affix. As a result, we have nurtured one of the best core teams of line producers and seasoned professionals that have worked with various brands, agencies, and fine arts educational institutions. We have one mantra for taking the industry ahead: Stay fresh, relevant, and original.
