One Life Studios teams up with Pocket Films to syndicate short films worldwide
With the association, the studio hopes to take the short film experience across the globe
Content creator and producer Siddharth Kumar Tewary’s One Life Studios has partnered with Pocket Films to syndicate their entire short film catalogue across the globe. Earlier, the studio had announced an exclusive partnership with Sony Pictures Networks India for CIS, CEE region along with China and Japan.
OLS continues with their spate of curating differentiated content in their library by partnering with Pocket Films for their short films. While they do have a selection of foreign titles, the lion’s share of the content is of Indian origin. With this association, One Life Studios hopes to take the short film experience across the globe.
Talking about the association, Siddharth said, "We at One Life Studios believe in the power of storytelling. What started for most of us having grown up in India as folklore or tales told to us by our grandparents, has become its own unique and incredible industry where the content of different kinds are being made and experienced. And today, we have the opportunity to experience stories from around the world across various formats. The short films, in particular, from being rather a niche in their appeal, have a reach that is equivalent to many other successful films and shows. We are happy to have partnered with Pocket Films to syndicate their content around the world and showcase such myriad Indian-origin content to viewers the world over."
Saameer Mody, founder and managing director of Pocket Films, said, “Our approach at Pocket Films has always been ‘Creator First’ and in keeping with that philosophy our aim is to expand the reach of the content created by our 3,500+ creators all across the globe. Having started with a channel on YouTube, Pocket Films today distributes their short films across multiple OTT platforms and has also recently launched its own OTT platform focussed on short films. We are pleased to partner with One Life Studios to leverage their ever-growing reach to ensure a wider and global audience for our vast catalogue of over 5,000 videos.”
