The jury is consisted of famous film personalities of the South Asia region, including India’s renowned documentary filmmaker Supriyo Sen, Nepal’s first documentary film festival director Mitu Varma and South Korean filmmaker Moon Chil-Park. 

In the ‘Competition’ category for local films, five documentaries will be selected for screening by a jury including National Award-winning filmmaker Shabnam Ferdousi, veteran director Shameem Akhtar and film critic Alam Khorshed.
