Dhaka International Mobile Film Festival (DIMFF) 2019

Feb 15 - Feb 16

Dhaka International Mobile Film Festival (DIMFF) has been started in 2015 as Cinemascope Mobile Film Competition (CMFC). The festival upholds and promotes the motto ‘New Generation, New Tools, New Communication’. The festival is free of entry. Competition category is restricted to university students in Under Graduate or Graduate level and One Minute Film category is restricted to Grade 1 – 12 students. Films for this festival must be shot in a mobile phone (cell-phone/smart phone). However, there is no restriction regarding brand, model and operating system of the phone as well as post-production tools.

The objective of the DIMFF is to involve young minds from anywhere in the world to take part in this festival.

The picture of film making in Bangladesh is reviving and slowly taking good shape with many of our young talents being appreciated in global awarding ceremonies. Filmmaking is a very strong platform, which may help to boost the image of our country.

CinemaScope aims to contribute in community development by reading, analyzing, and making films. A group of ULAB students join in Cinemascope and organize event and activities to develop the film sense of its members and community. CinePedia is the mouthpiece of CinemaScope, published once in a semester.
