  • We make experimental films - the theatrical presentations of the stories and in Bengali language. We received several awards from the festivals where Bengali language is known to them, or at least to some extent. BIC is one of few festivals outside of Bengali spoken people where we were recognized for our film and we got WINNER award in the Experimental Film Category.

    BIC is very punctual in running the show on schedule and very professional. We will indeed join with our future productions.
