Remembering eminent photographer-cinematographer Anwar Hossain on his first death anniversary today, a commemorative programme--organised by Moviyana Film Society--will be held at 6pm at the Seminar Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy in Segun Bagicha of the capital.

As part of the event, Moviyana Film Society is going to publish a special memorial poster painted by Sabyasachi Hazra. Noted filmmaker Syed Salahuddin Zaki will unveil the poster.

Filmmaker Masihuddin Saker, film critic Anupam Hayat, photographer Nasir Ali Mamun, Anwar Hossain’s brother Ali Hossain Babu and president of Moviyana Film Society Belayet Hossain Mamun will discuss the life and work of Anwar Hossain.

Hossain was born in Old Dhaka in 1948.
