While there are several auditoriums and film screening venues in Bengaluru, TERIFLIX is unique in offering a small space for team gathering and small gathering.
Launched in 2017 the mini theater is also catering to independent filmmakers who can play their copyrighted work on a large screen in a movie theatre like setting. Filmmakers can rent TERIFLIX for screening their mini, short or feature films. The team says they don’t allow pirated content into TERIFLIX, nor will they allow your content to be pirated. TERIFLIX is also building a repository of copyrighted movies from filmmakers which consumers will be able to watch.
