The Ministry of Information first provided a government grant of Tk2.5 lakh each to four film projects back in the fiscal year of 1976-77. Since then, the ministry has been granting funds to film-makers each year.

For the budget year of 2020-2021, the Ministry of Information announced the list of films receiving grants on June 15.

Last year, the Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud informed that the number of films receiving grants was increased in order to support and sustain the industry.

25 films, including 16 full length and 9 short films, received grants in the last fiscal year. This year, 20 full length films have been deemed eligible for the grants.  

Liberation War, general, and children's films were the three categories in which the grants were allocated.
