film society movement
The Film Society Movement in the University of Dhaka first started its journey in 1962. Mahbub Jamil and Mohammad Selim were among the chief organizers at that time who kept the organization strongly active for several years. In the late 1970s, students formed another organization, named ‘Science Cine Club’. This club arranged a film workshop after a few years. Professor Satish Bahadur and Professor Surendra Chowdhury of Pune Film Institute were among the instructors of that workshop. ‘Science Cine Club’ soon became the center of film-related activities in University of Dhaka. In 1991, the Film Society Movement in Dhaka University reformed with the name ‘Dhaka University Film Society’.
