Film Viewers' Forum, a platform of cine lovers of Dinajpur, was recently launched. On the inaugural day, four movies directed by Oscar winner Satyajit Ray were screened. These went down very well with cine goers as the private movie theatres are in a dilapidated condition.
Ray's four films were “Jono Aronnya” (1975), Kapurush O Mohapurush (1965), Charulata (1964) and Agantuk (1991).
Ziaul Haque convener of Film Viewers Forum, told The Daily Star that the Forum has already screened three shows in various parts of the district and the next films will be screened on April 17. He also went on to add that so far the non- profit Forum has 60 members who are at the forefront of the campaign to revive cinema, particularly with quality films from other countries.
