 A documentary on Momtazuddin Ahmed was also screened at the event and Nazrul Sangeet singer Ferdous Ara rendered songs.   

 Momtazuddin Ahmed was born in 1935. He is mostly known for his satirical plays and columns exposing social and political anomalies. Ahmed wrote around 40 plays for stage, radio and television and directed several of them besides acting in some of the most popular TV dramas in the 1970s and 80s.

 For his contributions to theatre and culture, he received the Bangla Academy Literary Award (1976) and the Ekushey Padak (1997).
