For the first time in history, an eight-member Bangladeshi film crew will grace the red carpet at Cannes

On June 3 at 11am, Pierre Lescure and Thierry Frémaux presented the Official Selection of the 74th Festival de Cannes at the UGC Normandie in Paris.

In the selection list shone bright one Bangladeshi film. Director Abdullah Mohammad Saad’s second feature “Rehana Maryam Noor” made it to the prestigious and competitive “Un Certain Regard” section of the 74th Cannes Film Festival.

Penned and edited by Saad, this is the first Bangladeshi film to have been officially selected at the festival. Previously, the late director Tareque Masud’s “Matir Moyna” was screened at the Director's Fortnight segment of the 55th Cannes.
