Who We Are                                                                                                                                  KalaAnantarupah Media Labs –Production Department is the International producer and distributor of distinctive and audacious audiovisual content. Our mandate has been to engage Talents and the world audience  through the production of artistic and innovative media that reflects our country and world audience’s points of view.

We are looking to work with a wide range of creators -- filmmakers and other media artists -- in the production of KML Films, documentaries, animation and original interactive digital content for all platforms including theatre,tv,mobile and the Web.

The KML’s Leadership Stage Filmmaking -Power up with TEAMS Program is a unique creative laboratory, providing artists and storytellers with an opportunity to develop new forms of artistic, imaginative and socially relevant media.

As creative producers, we work closely with directors, artists and co-producers to build collaborative teams around projects and help shape conditions for success. 

Selection Process and Criteria
Some ideas for the projects we produce come to us as pitches.  Some are generated internally.  Others are borne out of extended conversations with like-minded creators. All are measured against our overall programming criteria, which includes:
• Talent and vision of the creator/director 
• Originality of concept and approach 
• Creative excellence 
• Great storytelling 
• Innovation in form 
• Clearly articulated sense of the intended audience 
• Social relevance and impact 
• Viability of project (in terms of access, timeframe and budget)

We produce projects from across the country: from a wide range of communities, on a wide range of topics and reflecting a diversity of voices.  

We want to tell stories that aren't being told elsewhere and from perspectives that are underrepresented in the media.  Ensuring our mix of projects reflects this balance means we consider some additional factors when deciding which projects to produce/coproduce:
• Genre balance (films,documentary, animation, new media) 
• Diversity of stories/topics (for example, even if all the stories were very original, it's unlikely we'd  produce six films on a given topic—say the environment-- at the same time) 
• Diversity of filmmakers 
• Aboriginal voices 
• Regional reflection 
• Gender ratio 
• Target audience 
• Formats (including multiplatform and educational) 
• Ratio of productions vs co-productions vs international co-productions 

As a niche producer focused on the high-end of the production spectrum, we are very selective about the projects we produce and coproduce. We complete between 60-70 productions a year: a mix of films, documentaries, animations and original digital projects.

Our resources are finite. Unfortunately we can't produce every good story, but we strive continually to nourish a creative climate that allows such work to flourish.
