Palador began 4 years back as a movement to kick-start the tradition of great cinema in the Indian subcontinent. Today Palador has the largest collection of Foreign Language Cinema under one roof in Asia.

Palador owns the most award winning films from the greatest directors the world has ever seen – from masters of yesteryears to today's: Kurosawa, Kieslowski, Godard, Trauffaut, Kiarostami, Lynch etc. – to cinema in all genre: action, comedy, drama, documentary, short films etc. – to cinema from all movements: Italian Neo-Realism, French Impressionism, New-Wave Iranian etc. But Palador is not just about the content.

It's about programming them, to suit different needs of: TV Channels, Film Festivals, Corporates, Colleges, Clubs, Theatres etc. and of different media: DVD, TV, Internet, Theatre, Mobile etc. Besides this, Palador was the first to focus on the short works of aspiring film makers, helping to popularize the concept and adoption of short film in the Indian media landscape.

Palador is also the only in the world to program short films of aspiring film makers in the DVD movies of great directors. In short it is helping build a platform for freedom of expression for creators of good and great content in this nation. People call Palador the place of the programming experts, we simply call ourselves – Paladorians. To know more you can visit **
