"It was poetry that invent the technique of montage, not Einstein" -Joseph Brodsky Growing up in this era, we all are surrounded by the influences of the media. Regardless of how contradictory it may be, the media has a huge impact in our lives today. People have many opinions regarding this, some contradict on it promoting low self esteem while others appreciate it as a mode of self awareness, education and entertainment. However large or small the opinions may be, the media, to me was always fascinating. Fascinated with the making of entertainment, fascinated by Cinema producing such inception of plots with such intrinsic details however factious or not it may be. My initial thought was just that, to show the audience a glimpse of that process. Regarding films, there are two kinds of people. First the people for whom it is all created, for the people who enjoy the magic on the screen in front of them. While the other set of people are the people behind the screens, the people that create this magic. The Idea was to create such a platform for both the audience and the artists, celebrating the magic that is brought to us through film making. In our subcontinent, amongst India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Pakistan hasn't managed to flourish in the film industry as much as the rest of the two. The Indian Film Industry with all its glory is segregated to individual states, such as South Indians and Bengolis. While in Bangladesh, there is just this one platform of media that intends on serving 16 Crore Bangladeshis. Impress Telefilm has achieved great deal in the course of its film production. Since 2000 to present, they are on the list of National Film Awards. Although variety of theatres exist throughout the country and we have FDC to facilitate space, studios, opportunities, equipment that would provide people to make films. But a growing industry of film and media like our country, one film industrial space facility is not enough. By allowing film industry to expand, educate, advertise, etc. Impress Telefilm would want to create their own ‘Film City’ as they believe if our film-industry goes forward, it means our country is becoming enriched. Further, being Bangladeshi, Impress Telefilm hosts year round events celebrating our Bangladeshi Culture. Starting from Robindro Mela to Ekushe February, Impress Telefilm intends on gathering the public together in one place to celebrate the gift of being Bangladeshi. This project attempts to grasp just that, the gathering of all Bangladeshis to celebrate the cinematic journey, celebrate being Bangladeshi. We are a Developing Country, also a developing Film Industry. This platform intends to encourage the public, the audiences to feel the cinematic journey of film making, to inspire the creators of the journey and inspire the new generation of Bangladeshis towards the beautiful representation of our country, our culture, our Bangladesh through the art of film making.
