Known for being fiercely independent in spirit with a strong focus in poetics and reality, Victor is a big favourite on the international film festival circuit as an influential figure in the world of documentary.
Incepted in fond memory of Tareque Masud, 'Filmy Bahas' is a virtual rendezvous for filmy dialogue, debate and discussion. TMMC is a lecture series intended with only the best of the world benefiting mostly the up-and-coming filmmakers, young film professionals, film organisers and film students from Bangladesh. The prime objective of the series is to share knowledge and wisdom through generations, a motto that Tareque carried all through his lifetime. The idea is to bring different school of thoughts to the young filmmakers in contrast to the stereotyped.
