First Bangladeshi film in Locarno

Promising Bangladeshi filmmaker in the international short film scene, Mahde Hasan, has yet again become a pride for our country. His sixteen-minute-long short film, A Boring Film, is the first film from Bangladesh to compete in the prestigious Locarno Film Festival. The film has been selected in the Pardi di domani International Competition of Locarno Film Festival 2020. It has been produced by Mahajabin Khan and Muhammad Anwar Hossain. Aside from working for the cinematography, editing and sound, Mahde has also acted in the film. From 2,200 films only 45 short films, from 32 countries, have been selected for the short film category of the Locarno Film Festival. The festival will be held online from 5-15 August, 2020. Previously, Mahde's first feature film, Sand City, currently in development, was selected for La Fabrique Cinema at the Cannes Film Festival 2019.
