MContent is working with the Bollywood writer and director Anurag Kashyap (Sacred Games) on a mentorship and funding program for aspiring filmmakers and content creators in India and neighboring countries.

The program will be hosted on MContent’s MSeed platform, which allows content creators to apply by downloading MContent and then uploading a two- to three-minute pitch video. These videos can then be viewed and voted on by the MContent community, consisting of consumers and investors around the world.

Top-rated projects will be shortlisted, and four will be selected. The winners will have the chance to be mentored by Kashyap and other filmmakers and ultimately have their dream film project produced and exhibited by MContent.

“With this program, the winning content creators selected will not only be getting the funding needed to bring their film projects to life but also invaluable experience working under the tutelage of an award-winning filmmaker,” said MContent’s founder and CEO, Umair Masoom. “Anurag Kashyap is one of Bollywood’s finest, and his participation in this program is emblematic of the caliber of talent we at MContent are looking to partner with for our unique #Watch2Earn content streaming platform and custom cinema for the metaverse, the MContent Cineverse.”

“I’m excited to have collaborated with the only global #Watch2Earn content ecosystem developed by MContent and backed by the Gargash Group,” said Kashyap. “I was impressed with the vision and believe in the scalability of their web3-based decentralization solution, which can convert content viewers into content owners. This product is now showing the world a glimpse of film and television’s future.”
