Utsav Bhanja, a Kolkata boy and the creator of the platform has established his website as a new wing under his parent company Jackson Records Digital Entertainment, in which he holds the position of the managing partner.

“The website was live over the past 10 months when we were only serving free to watch videos from our licensed content library under our record label Jackson Records. We launched the online theatre on 1st January, 2016 and moved the free section to ScreenPremiere TV, a sub-directory”, said Utsav.

Bengali film director Arindam Sil has shown his interest in the model and has reportedly spoken to other industry stalwarts regarding the same. Director Satarupa Sanyal has already screened her latest film Onyo Opalaa on the website for audience outside India & Bangladesh.

Many producers are getting in touch and are even looking forward to premièring their films on exclusively for a global audience”, said Bhanja. could be the next big thing for the Indian film industry, especially for the independent film circuit owing to the advantage of the platform which is also screening short films and documentaries.

Averagely priced around Rs.70, consumers would be able to watch the movies on their PCs or mobiles in full HD. The platform has plans to expand to other circles of the country soon.
