Company Overview

Riverbank Studios was set up in 1973 by Mike Pandey with an eye on creating value based and conservation films as well as a vast footage archive. Since then the studio has grown into a fully equipped production house that makes films and television content.

The creative impulse at Riverbanks is driven by the need to work on ideas that are dynamic and socially and environmentally responsible.
