Indian filmmakers are seeking a trusted, sanctioned method of international distribution to increase their opening
weekend gross and curb their billion dollar piracy problem.
Dingora provides a platform for filmmakers to release films to
an international audience on the same day as their theatrical
Dingora allows filmmakers to:
● Beat piracy by releasing HD quality content before the low
quality, camcorder shot videos hit the Internet
● Control ticket price, run dates and countries or cities to
show or block movies, avoiding theatrical release overlap
● Protect movies with proprietary fingerprinting technology
and the maximum rights management security available
● Reach new international viewers spending more per ticket
Dingora is founded by Pankaj Sikka, the creator of PassionforCinema.com
(PFC). His site has developed a community of hardcore fans of Indian and
independent world cinema. PFC hosts the blogs of many of India's most
prestigious directors, writers and actors. This network brings a remarkable
list of advisors to Dingora, like: Anurag Kashyap (Director/Producer - Udaan,
Black Friday), Saurabh Shukla (Award winning Actor/Writer/Director), and
Christina Marouda (President of the International Film Festival of LA).
Pankaj has proven his ability to source Indian content by securing 12 small to medium budget Indian films prepared to
release with Dingora. Based on negotiations with several larger studios, it is clear that increasing Dingora’s marketing
and legal footprint will assist in securing additional top-tier Bollywood blockbusters.

the SproutBox team, Dingora has gone from an idea to a revenue-ready product, ready for deployment in early June.
Dingora is projected to reach profitability in month 16 with
