T-Hub has been a center of innovation in Telangana, supporting start-up companies in several ways. The cinepreneur graduation ceremony for this year was held at T-Hub in Hyderabad on Friday.
The event was graced by Principal Secretary Jayesh Ranjan (IAS), T-Hub CEO Y Srinivasa Rao, Telangana State Film, TV & Theatre Development Corporation Anil Kurmachalam, Telugu Cinema Chamber of Commerce leader Basi Reddy, People Media Factory's TG Vishwa Prasad, RP Patnaik, and others.
Speaking on the occasion, Mee School's Founder-Director Pratibha Pulijala said, “Cinepreneur is a film start-up company started in T-Hub. The main objective is to act as a bridge for those who want to enter the film industry. We train people in techniques related to filmmaking. Eminent people in the field of cinema have been hired as mentors. For example, for the camera department 'Baahubali' and 'RRR' cinematographer KK Senthil Kumar has been a Cinepreneur. Also, we have provided a proper understanding of cinema and the film industry to all those who have taken the course in Cinepreneur under the guidance of people from the 24 crafts."
Jayesh Ranjan appreciated the start-up for its efforts. "Our support is always there for all those who work creatively on behalf of the Telangana Government," he added.
Y Srinivasa Rao, CEO of T-Hub, said, ''We are helping many start-up companies through T-Hub. Soon, we are going to create a green mat and visual effects studio spread across an area of one lakh and fifty thousand square feet with support from the government."
The upcoming movie 'O Saathiya' also received encouragement on the occasion.
