Anchored by NHP Centre and the Team, Cinemaazi is a collaborative effort of many scholars, experts and others.
A number of institutions and people before us have tirelessly carried out tremendous work in documenting the rich history and heritage of Indian cinema. Many out of them continue to passionately build on their previous work even today. Not only do they deeply inspire us, we also benefit enormously from their work in our humble effort of documenting Indian film history. While we acknowledge their contribution as a source of information wherever relevant, we would like to make a special mention of a few such institutions and people here:
NHP Centre is deeply grateful to its consultants and writers without whose guidance and support Cinemaazi would not have been possible.
Others whose contribution needs mention is:
Although the visuals are primarily from the private collection of the founders and are free of copy right, we acknowledge and extend due credit to the people, dead or alive, who created these visuals which we marvel even decades later.
In cases where visuals used or posted or referred may be copy right of individuals or bodies, it is clarified that they have been used for bonafide purpose as part of documentation of the history of Indian cinema, without seeking any commercial gains from their usage, and every care has been taken to provide due credit at relevant places. As pointed out, NHP Centre is a not for profit body and Cinemaazi is a freely access platform. The registration and payment of fee, to access select sections, is in the nature of donation, to meet part of the cost of the project. The end beneficiary of use of the said assets is the rightful owner himself/herself. In the event, inadvertently or for reasons unintentional, proper or appropriate credit has not been attributed in respect of any asset, please write on firstname.lastname@example.org and NHP Centre would endeavour to promptly address the issue after examination.
Notwithstanding the above, NHP Centre will, as far as possible, seek to share and distribute images and video-related content in a reasonably low-resolution format, or with watermarks, so as to protect the commercial viability of such content.
