Amar Bhashar Chalacchitra
আমার ভাষার চলচ্চিত্র
Amar Bhasar Cholochchitro is a regular film festival organized by Dhaka University Film Society (DUFS). Every year in February this festival carries the significance of the International Mother Language Day and pays tribute to the martyrs of the 1952 Language Movement.
Renowned Bengali films from Bangladesh and West Bengal are screened at TSC auditorium during the festival. This is a five day long program including Hiralal Sen Award giving Ceremony, Seminar, Film book stall, Film Museum, Poster presentation, Infographic installation and so on. Dividing the days into four sessions, films are projected at TSC auditorium.
This festival is the result of the continuation of several past efforts of DUFS, and for those viewers who love watching contemporary and classic Bengali films. It started its journey back in 2002, reenergized in 2007 with a current title.
DUFS believes this festival can play a key-role to uphold the spirit of the Language Movement in 1952. DUFS also thinks that one of the best way to pay the tribute to the martyrs who gave their lives for the recognition of the mother tongue of the Bangladeshis, is by promoting better Bengali films.
The latest edition of this festival ‘Amar Bhashar cholochhitro 1425’ was held in TSC compound on10-14 February, 2019. The festival is now recognized as the biggest festival on Bangla Cinema.
