TEAM

Safdar Rahman

Safdar is a filmmaker and educator. He worked as an Executive Producer with the maverick Calcutta-based film company Oddjoint for many years before venturing out to start Travelling Light with his partner and wife Celine. He has just directed his first feature film called Chippa starring Sunny Pawar (from the Academy Award winning film Lion), which is travelling to festivals all over the world including Edinburgh, Zlin, IFF Los Angeles, New York IFF, IFFSA Toronto, and IFF Stuttgart. Safdar also gives his time to initiatives that deal with education and runs a non-profit organisation called red lorry yellow lorry.

 

Celine Loop

Celine is a deep-sea diver who graduated as a lawyer specializing in Intellectual Property Rights law in Belgium and came to India as a backpacker in 2008. After falling in love with the country and spending a year working at the erstwhile Amarchand Mangaldas she consequently set up the Indian operations for Belgian law firm Darts IP. Then, suddenly, Celine somehow found herself at the forefront of a wave of independent Indian cinema. She had been a partner and producer at Oddjoint, working with the maverick director Q for 6 years before venturing out with Travelling Light, and has a filmography that stretches to 8 films. Her films have shown at festivals all across the world including the Berlinale, Sundance, Rome and Sitges. She also runs a Belgian film production company which calls itself What About? Productions.
