Apart from producing and distributing Bengali films, SVF has distributed Bollywood and Hollywood films in eastern India. The other divisions of the company include Exhibition, TV Production, Digital Cinema, Music, Home Video and IPR syndication. SVF has been in Anandabazar Patrika's powerlist for two years 2008 & 2010.
Shree Venkatesh Films (SVF) was started in 1996 by Shrikant Mohta and Mahendra Soni, who transformed it into one of the biggest media and entertainment houses in Eastern India.
In the Filmed Entertainment space, SVF has following divisions: Production, Distribution, Exhibition, Digital Cinema and Music and Online Store.
Shree Venkatesh Films Pvt Ltd is one of the biggest integrated Production house in Eastern India. Till date it has produced around 59 films including National Award winning films like Memories in March Chokher Bali and Raincoat, blockbusters like Sasur Bari Zindabad, Sathi, Minister Phatakesto, Champion, Jackpot, Chirodini Tumi Je Amar, Poran Jai Joliya Re, Josh and Awara etc., critically acclaimed films like Autograph, Iti Mrinalini, Memories in March, Baishe Srabon, Prem Amar, Hemlock Society, Royal Bengal Rahashya and much awaited films like Chitrangada-The Crowning Wish, .
In January 2008, Shree Venkatesh Films entered into a partnership with industry leaders Real Image Media Technologies Pvt. Ltd. to exclusively bring their Qube Digital Cinema(TM) technology to Eastern India.
This initiative introduced a Digital cinematic experience for audiences in West Bengal for the first time on a larger scale catering to Category B and Category C towns as well.
Digital Cinema is a revolutionary change in the way movies are distributed, delivered, and projected in cinema halls with high quality, high definition, powerful and flexible Digital Cinema system. Digital prints can be distributed via physical media such as external Hard Drives and/or Satellite instead of conventional 35mm film reels. With the mission of digitizing all the theatres in Eastern India, V-Digital has successfully installed Digital projection of cinema onto the theatres. This has not only improved the quality of cinema projection but is also leased a new life to the almost dead, defunct and discarded cinema halls. Today, V-Digital has achieved ‘digitization’ of over 200 cinema halls across West Bengal, making it one of the fastest rollouts of Digital Cinema anywhere in India.
In the television space, SVF has co-promoted Media Worldwide Pvt. Ltd and its four leading channels: Music India, Sangeet Bangla, Sangeet Bhojpuri and Music India UK. The company has also been producing prime-time shows for Star Jalsha, ETV Bangla, Rupashi Bangla and Mahua Bangla, Sanada TV including shows like Maa (the highest TRP show in West Bengal), Behula, Durga, Bandhan, I Laugh You, Sindur Khela, Janmantar, Mrs Singha Roy, Bisharjan, Sangsar Sukher Hoy Ramanir Guney and Bodhu Kon Alo Laglo Chokhe.
