ProducerLand aspires to provide an immersive learning exposure and mentoring by a global panel of over 40 experts, to facilitate enhancement of producers' skills, potential and global networking opportunities
ProducerLAND has selected 18 distinctive professionals to attend South Asia's first advanced program for dynamic producers, one of whom is Junjuni Chakma, a Bangladeshi line producer from Applebox Films.
Aside from working as a freelance producer, she has been at Applebox Films Ltd for the last two years. Junjuni Chakma completed her graduation from ULAB where she studied Digital Film & TV production. She says her ultimate goal is to reach out to the mass with unheard, yet significant stories through cinema.
She said, "Getting the chance to participate in ProducerLAND2021 at this moment, especially when the media industry is at a rise in Bangladesh, I think will be a great opportunity for me to contribute to our growing film industry."
"This 4-month extensive workshop will push me enhance my knowledge and skills as a producer through the experience and the networking that I will acquire," she continued. "The aspiring producers of Bangladesh barely get any initiative to pursue higher degrees in film studies or production."
"For this reason, I think this kind of course can be a stepping stone for the young producers to introduce themselves in the curricular field and gradually flourish themselves as professionals."
Earlier, the Storiculture Company, a ‘Native-for-Global’ Network of Film and Content Expertise, announced the launch of ProducerLAND 2021, the first edition of its 'Learning and Network Development Program for Film Producers from South Asia.'
