“Iti Tomari Dhaka,” Bangladesh's first anthology film, has won an award at the Kazan International Muslim Film Festival. Impress Telefilm consultant and creative producer of the film, Abu Shahed Emon, confirmed the news. 

The film won an award under the Russian Film Critics’ Guild category. Ahmed Muztaba Zamal, festival director of the Dhaka International Film Festival (DIFF) received the award on behalf of the film’s cast and crew. 

Directed and written by Rahat Rahman, “Iti Tomari Dhaka” premiered at the 23rd Busan Film Festival (BIFF) in October 2018. It was selected for BIFF—in the Window on Asian Cinema section—as the only entry from Bangladesh that year.

More than 30 actors are featured in the film.

The film also participated in the ninth edition of India’s Kolhapur International Film Festival organized by the Kalamaharshi Baburao Painter Film Society.

Fifteen installments of the seven-day long film festival ended on April 30 in Kazan, the capital city of the Republic of Tatarstan. 

With the motto “To the dialogue of cultures through the culture of dialogue,” the first edition of the festival began in 2005.
