Bidit Roy is a self-taught documentary filmmaker based out of Pune, India. Born in the sunshine state of Rajasthan, Bidit spent two years working as a software developer before entering the creative industry professionally. His films have been screened in over 70 film festivals worldwide. The 2019 short doc ‘The Bee Rescuer’ has won 9 awards internationally and over 41 Official festival selections.
He is a yatri at Jagriti Yatra (2017) - the world's largest entrepreneurial expedition and a fellow at Docedge (2021) - the Asian forum for documentary filmmakers. Bidit was recently honored at IFFI 2021 as one of 'India's 75 Creative Minds' by Gov. of India.
Bidit loves animals and follows a Vegan lifestyle. He recharges himself with mountain treks, spontaneous road trips, strumming his guitar and exploring culinary arts.
”The amount of reach, popularity and niche audience my work could attract was mostly thanks to Bidit putting his heart and might behind making our short film, ‘The Bicycle Maker’. It's hard to have a storyteller who dives to the depths as he does and has the vision and skills to match. His tagline, ‘Moving Stories’ is well deserved. The filming process was quite a memorable experience, thanks to his approach and patience towards me, as somebody who hasn't faced the camera much. Trust developed naturally with a genuine chap like him and the shoot was a breeze. The film earned recognitions in film festivals around the world down the years, that was way more than I had expected. Apart from a client, I am also a subscribed fan now and admire his selection of subjects and stories!”

”I met Bidit in Jagriti Yatra 2017-18. While interacting with him, I got to know that he is an animal lover, especially dogs. I being a honey bee lover, we instantly got connected and decided to make a short documentary on the plight of honey bees. We shot "The Bee Rescuer" film over a span of 1.5 years. During the shoot, he also got stung many times. Still, he was determined to make the film. We went to different locations across Maharashtra. I still remember how we trekked all night to Harihar fort in Nashik to rescue a beehive there. It was challenging work. What I admire about him is that his dedication and drive to excel while shooting and editing. I have worked closely with many documentary filmmakers, but his approach, creativity and thinking process makes him extraordinary.”

"'Mavericks' is what I can describe Bidit and Bluebird Moving Stories if I have to describe them in one word. Bluebird in its objectives and the passion you see in Bidit to achieve them is unique and what made us connect. He did the Brand identity for ROUGHNEXT. The initial research, design thinking and meticulous work provided by Bidit made me his Patron. If you are looking for a creative partner to reflect your core values in a unique, thoughtful way, I recommend him. Flight of Bluebird is an easy way to engage and experience this transformative journey yourself.

"Bidit's films look great! It's clear that he cares about his work and takes time to do it correctly. Our journey started in 2019 with the film 'Everyday Cyclists: Challenging Prejudice'. The whole process of filming, and the recognition I received post film's release has been very memorable to me. I especially like his planning, execution and the quality he delivers at the end. His creative ideas always encourage me to continue working with him."
- Devendra Yadav (Founder, Green Cycle Club)
”I have worked with Bidit over the span of 4 years on diverse kinds of projects. I have thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience from start to end. Be it creative brainstorming sessions, storyboarding discussions, scripting of the final shoot, Bidit has great inputs at every stage. The entire journey is very process driven and hence the output comes as expected - Profound and Extraordinary.”

Interview at 'Great Companies.in'
Bidit Roy : I see Bluebird Moving Stories as a place where causes and voices which are away from the spotlight get all the attention and support. A 'good' video story is the first touch-point for anyone to get associated with any individual, cause or organization. And a 'good' film can come at a steep price. Bluebird wants to bridge the gap...

After five months of efforts, the shelter was relocated in a massive project led by Bidit.
