stories that entertain, educate & inspire
Elephant Corridor Films is a video production company based in Bengaluru, India that specializes in documentary films.
In 2002, Elephant Corridor Films was founded by film-school friends Rajani Mani and Nina Subramani. Educated at MCRC, Jamia Millia Islamia, they are the Producers, Directors and Writers of award winning documentary films such as MILES TO GO (2004), IN GOD'S OWN COUNTRY (2002), FOOD? HEALTH? HOPE?

We are a grantee of the Rohini Nilekani Philanthropies for our current film COLONIES IN CONFLICT (2022), a film about India's declining wild bee population. Directed by Rajani Mani, the film was a Finalist at Jackson Wild Media Awards 2022, and won the Best Independent Production Award at Wildlife Film Festival Rotterdam 2022.
Our films deal with social and environmental issues - covering stories such as ecosystem conservation, indigenous knowledge, sustainable food systems and impact of climate change. We believe our films are a tool for social action and our stories have the power to shift focus and reshape lives.
We tell stories We create
We invest the time to engage in the environment where we work. Our expertise in research, and the knowledge of major Indian languages, helps us to develop creative and insightful projects that benefit from our "dig deep and get your hands dirty" approach!
We align with organisations and select projects that resonate with our values and ethics. Our goal is to tell stories that engage our audience and inspire them. We take pride in ensuring that
the production of our films is inline with our artistic tastes and sensibilities.
With a tight research in place, we are adept at securing a script that guides a project along through production. Our intimate approach to understanding people, and their interactions with their environment ensures that our written words portray a unique perspective to any story.
"Photography is truth. And cinema is truth twenty-four times a second" said Jean-Luc Godard. Editing is sometimes the hardest and the longest process in filmmaking. We bring together creative talent and technical knowledge to every film. Our team specializes in both short form and long form editing, color grading, visual fx and sound mixing, as well as online, mastering, and deliverables for television & streaming platforms.
