This film festival is being jointly organised by the Bangladesh High Commission and the National Film Corporation, while the organising will be handled by senior Film critic Dhanushka Gunatillake.
The world renowned names in cinema Thagor and Ritwik Ghatak were associated with East Bengalle. Bengali films have been gaining prominence in the South Asian region. They adopt a balanced artistic approach and in terms of training in this field, they are far ahead of Sri Lanka.
Therefore, Dhanushka has made it a point to include several of the exceptional and highly acclaimed films in this film festival including films related to culture and several creative films.
These films in Bengali will include English sub-titles.
The film festival will commence at the Tharanganie hall at 5.30 on March 23.
