The Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation (HSBC) Ltd in Bangladesh recently sponsored a daylong workshop on film for the underprivileged children in the city on the occasion of the 1st International Children's Festival, says a press release.
Eminent filmmakers Katherine Masud and Morshedul Islam, celebrated artist Mustafa Monwar and writer Muhammad Zafar Iqbal shared their experiences on the art of film at the workshop.
HSBC also provided 20 street children the opportunity to attend the opening day of the festival.
Besides, HSBC also arranged a special screening on February 1 for more than 70 students from School of Hope, a school set up for disadvantaged children in Gulshan and Badda area.
Speaking on the occasion, Sami Hafiz, head of Corporate Responsibility at HSBC, said “Film can have a great influence on the development of young minds and can help children express themselves in more innovative and creative ways. We were therefore delighted to be able to support the first ever International Children's Festival in Bangladesh and provide this opportunity for so many children.”
