Film screening of Int'l inter-university film festival begins

   DHAKA, Sept 25, 2021 (BSS) - The formal film screening of 13th 
International Inter-University Short Film Festival (IIUSFF) began today at 
Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy in the capital.

   A total of 164 films, officially selected from 1,310 films of 95 
countries, are being screened in the three-day film screening starting today 
at National Music and Dance auditorium of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy, said 
a press release.
   Dhaka University Film Society (DUFS), in collaboration with the United 
Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), has organized the festival 
with the theme 'Nakshi Kantha' or embroidered quilt, a century-old 
traditional Bengali art.

   After the final screening on September 27, an award-giving ceremony will 
be held on September 30 at Star Cineplex at the Bashundhara City Shopping 
Mall Star, where State Minister for Information and Communication Technology 
Zunaid Ahmed Palak is expected to attend.

   Every year, the festival aims to feature a native art form in order to 
introduce the world to the country's incredibly rich culture and history.

   In 2007, International Inter-University Short Film Festival initiated its 
journey with the motto'Take your camera, frame your dream' to provide young 
and talented university-going filmmakers worldwide, a platform to showcase 
their talent. 

   Over the years it has succeeded in creating a name of its own and working 
as a cross-cultural platform to portray the different styles and dimensions 
of young university-going filmmakers throughout the world.
