The New Age Cinemas & Scripts (NACS) is a bi-annual festival with two grand live screening events in a year. We promote filmmakers and screenplay writers locally and globally. We provide an all inclusive platform where you can promote your work, share your thoughts, make friends from the industry.

We screen your films in state of the art theatres, promote your work in every way and have an eager audience ready to watch your masterpiece.

The winners in the screenplay category are given slots where they can read out excerpts from the scripts in front of the audience.

We are intensely committed to promote independent artists and celebrate their work by giving them access to an eager, intelligent and sensitive audience.

**IMPORTANT UPDATE**

Keeping the severity of the COVID 19 situation in Maharashtra in mind, we are not hosting a live screening this season. Every submitted work shall be duly promoted on social media.

  • Thank you so much for including us in this exciting festival. We are so honored to have received Official Selection for our experimental short film Avatar Gates of Power. It is so exciting to receive such positive feedback for our trailblazing work in the genre of Sound Healing as a Visual and Audio Multi Sensory odyssey for the soul. The world is ready for new kinds of experiences in film and music. Thanks so much!
