Indian Movie Friend is a first ever ticketing platform for Indian Movies and south asian events, music concerts in the UK market.
It is our mission to promote quality Indian shows and movies to a world-wide audience, making Indian Movie Friend the leading global brand for the Indian movie industry.
It all started when Pratik Shelar was studying at Coventry University, UK back in 2013. Being passionate about Movies, he would go to the local cinema to watch Indian Movies every Friday. That’s when he realized that very few people were aware of the release of Indian movies in UK cinemas. There was not a single centralized platform available to get information about Indian movies releasing in the UK and hence Indian Movie Friend was born on 26th January 2016 as the first Ticketing Portal for Indian Movies and events, concerts in the UK.
As the business evolved we diversified into movie financing and streaming, and created GoViddo which is blockchain-based platform that provides fundraising, project development and distribution opportunities for film-makers.
