Shuchi Talati's Girls Will Be Girls selected for Gotham Week

The script of Richa Chadha-Ali Fazal's maiden production, Girls Will Be Girls, is the only Indian film selected for Gotham Week (formerly IFP) this year.

The project is written and is to be directed by filmmaker Shuchi Talati. The script has been selected as part of the international features section at this year’s Gotham Week.

Gotham Week is a global film market for filmmakers to network with financiers, festival curators, sales agents and producers. The annual event will be held virtually this year between September 19-24.

Fifteen international film scripts from across the globe have been selected for this edition, of which one is Girls Will Be Girls. The film is an Indo-French co-production between Pushing Buttons Studio (Richa Chadha and Ali Fazal), Crawling Angel Films (Sanjay Gulati and Pooja Chauhan) and Dolce Vita Films (Claire Chassagne).

On the Gotham Week selection, Richa shared, “We hope to be able to find like-minded investors and collaborators at Gotham Week to join us in making this exciting film. It is a fresh and feminist story, and I believe Shuchi is a new voice in Indian cinema.”

Director Shuchi Talati said, “Girls Will Be Girls deals with gendered power dynamics and female sexuality and I’ve always thought the story would resonate internationally so I’m really happy about this selection. I hope Gotham Week will be a launchpad for us as we fundraise and build a mostly female crew—I hope people reach out to us."
