Popcorn Flicks adapts James Cameron's now famous take on film-making. We are India's only production-house that has made films in all budgets, formats, genre; from guerrilla feature films to conventional feature films & filmed content. Amit R Agarwal, Lord Baden-Powell National Award winning filmmaker, is the founder & COO of Popcorn Flicks. He is the only film-maker from India to have co-directed films for the second biggest film industry in the world, Nollywood.
Agarwal has been invited as Guest of Honor to Producers' Network, Marche du Film ONLINE 2020, Festival de Cannes. He believes in innovation and smart filmmaking. This innovation led to the formation of Popcorn Flicks. Popcorn Flicks originated from the thought that filmed content should be a blend of creativity, commercial viability, entertainment and salability; this led us to create path-breaking unconventional content since 2007.
Covid-19 pandemic made Agarwal do an introspection and retrospection. He realized that cinema is a very powerful tool to bring a change to the society, this thought made Popcorn Flicks launch Cinema For Cause vertical. The Impact-Mission films made under these are CovidGo, world's 1st covid vaccine film featuring real-life doctors, the success of this film is that it impacted and motivated a lot many people to take covid vaccine, not only in India, but UK & worldwide, as well. Honey Kapoor ~ YoLo, is Asia-Africa's 1st mental health awareness feature film, also the 1st India-Kyrgyzstan feature film and world's 1st remote-filmed feature film. It brings to fore the much neglected cause, because a sound mental health is very important for the people to be happy and only happy people can give back to the society and make the world a better place to live in.
Popcorn Flicks primarily works under two verticals, a non-commercial vertical Cinema For Cause and a commercial vertical, 69 Opposites Attract. 69 Opposites Attract and Amit R Agarwal, are part of Doctoral Thesis approved by UNSW, Sydney, Australia.
