Bangladeshi films called for 94th Oscar submission

The 94th Oscar Bangladesh Committee has invited Bangladeshi films made in Bengali language to nominate Bangladeshi films in the Best International Feature Film (Foreign Language Competition) category of the Oscars.

Authorities said in a mail that they would be able to participate in the selection process of any full-length film, including English subtitles, which will be screened for seven consecutive days in Bangladeshi cinemas released after January 1 of this year.

Filmmakers interested in participating in the selection process are requested to collect the photo submission form and detailed rules from Ashirbad Cholochitro's office (7/9 Eastern Commercial Complex, 73 Kakrail; email: [email protected]) by October 14, 5 pm.

A nine-member committee has been formed under the chairmanship of media personality Habibur Rahman Khan at the initiative of Bangladesh Federation of Film Societies to nominate Bangladeshi films in the Best International Feature Film category of the Oscars, like every year.

The 94th Academy Awards ceremony, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, will honour the best films released since March 1, 2021, and is scheduled to take place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California.
