Bangabandhu Film City to open in 2018
Bangladesh’s first film city built on 105 acres of land, named Bangabandhu Film City, is set to open its doors in January 2018. Director of Bangladesh Film Development Corporation (BFDC) (tech and engineering) and Bangabandhu Film City Muhummed Azam recently told the press that the Tk19.8 crore project was suppose to finish its first phase by June 2018. Since the construction, which began back in January 2016, ended prior to its deadline, hence the opening will take place sooner. The first phase of the whole project includes shooting sets of four rural homes, a village market, a restaurant, a big lake, pond and many more. It consists of four well-built makeup rooms, an electric sub-station, street lights, roads for transportation within the area, and two gardens, among others. The project also includes battery-controlled paddle boats around the lake and a restaurant for shooting was also built on an artificial island on the lake, which has a steel bridge for access. The film city includes a dormitory with 18 well-decorated rooms for the artists who will work during the shoots at the city. Most of these constructions are ready and will be ready-for-use before the opening in January, according to Azam. He also said that back in 2012, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina promised that Bangabandhu Film City will be built in Dhaka’s Kabirpur. A budget of Tk19.8 crore was allocated for the project and construction ensued. BFDC’s newly appointed Managing Director Amir Hossain recently told the press that they are working tenaciously to complete the project within the time frame. They have further taken steps for another Development Project Proposal (DPP) for the second phase of the project and have already worked on to get the clearance for its funding. He also added that they want to create a film studio where a filmmaker can get in at ease, with his or her project and get out with a complete film. A state-of-the-art post production studio is needed and said they have plans for that as well. Amir also added they are planning to build a link road from Chandra - Nabinagar highway to the film city for better communication and transportation. They also want to build a film museum, five-star standard hotel, motel, a resort and a monument of Bangabandhu in the premises. Moahammed Azam hopes “Bangabandhu Film City will be one of the best film studios in Asia.”
