Mahde Hasan Wins at Locarno

In celebration of its 70 years, Locarno Festival has introduced their newest segment “#movieofmylife (Movie of My Life)” in 2017. This segment, which featured 70-second long clips made by budding filmmakers around the world, received much praise and was exhibited in the world-famous Piazza Grande of the Locarno Festival. Along with six other international filmmakers, Mahde Hasan from Bangladesh has been awarded in the “Movie of My Life” segment. Mahde's winning clip was based on the legendary filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami's film Where is the Friend's Home. He said, “Even though this segment isn't a part of the main competition, it feels amazing to have a work made by a Bangladeshi filmmaker presented in front of such a large international audience.” Mahde Hasan was one of the first participants of the workshop conducted by Celebrating Life, where he not only completed the workshop with flying colors but survived the rigorous phase-by-phase elimination. He finished the final stages of the workshop by having his film selected in the end. Star Showbiz congratulates Mahde on this commendable success.
