Bangladeshi filmmaker Mahde Hasan’s debut feature film ‘Sand City’ won a 8,000-Euro development grant from France’s Centre National du Cinéma in this year’s edition of the Locarno Festival’s Open Doors project.  The award earns Hasan a two-month residency offered by the Winterthur International Short Film Festival in partnership with Villa Sträuli.

The project Sand City’ is about three inhabitants of Dhaka - a Buddhist monk, a materialist young man, and an ethnic minority woman – all united by the unstable element of sand.  

Besides, the world premiere of Aung Rakhine’s short film ‘The Last Post Office’ was held on August 7 at the same festival.
