The construction of a multi-storey complex, with modern indoor shooting facilities, inside Bangladesh Film Development Corporation has got primary approval from the government’s planning commission.
The complex will include indoor shooting spaces, cineplex, accommodation facilities, library and research centre, food courts, swimming pool and others to facilitate indoor shooting.
‘Following our submission of DPP, the project has been given primary approval by the planning commission,’ said Muhammad Azam, director of Bangladesh Film Development Corporation.
The proposed BFDC Complex will cost Tk 300 crore, Azam added.
The BFDC Complex will be constructed on the field adjacent to shooting floors 3 and 4, which will also be demolished to make space for the building.
‘A modern multi-purpose building with shooting floors and other facilities will help filmmakers in many ways. Moreover, the cineplex, library and research centre will also help film enthusiasts and film researchers’, Tapan Kumar Ghosh, managing director of BFDC, told New Age.
It will also be a source of income for the corporation, he added. The BFDC steering committee approved the proposal for the building at a general meeting in 2015, said Ghosh.
At present BFDC has nine shooting floors, most of which are in a sorry state and with almost little or no modern facilities.
