‘The Last Post Office’ invited to France

Bangladeshi short film ‘The Last Post Office’ has been selected for the international competition of Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival, the biggest short film festival in the world. The 41st edition of the festival will take place from February 1 to 9, 2019 in Clermont-Ferrand, France. Directed by Aung Rakhine, written by Rajib Rafi and produced by Rubaiyat Hossain and Aadnan Imtiaz Ahmed, ‘The Last Post Office’ is a fairy tale with an evil twist. On the edge of Bangladesh, cradled between mountains and water, stands a post office-the only mark of civilization. This post office has a notorious reputation.

Earlier this year, the 17-min long film had its world premiere at Locarno Film Festival’s Open Doors section. Made in Bengali language, ‘The Last Post Office’ is Aung Rakhine’s second film and his debut film ‘My Bicycle’ was the first Chakma language film in Bangladesh.

“Clermont-Ferrand is the most important festival for short films, so we are thrilled that ‘The Last Post Office’ has been selected,” said producer Aadnan Imtiaz Ahmed.

“They choose some of the best films made in the current year and their trademark is the discovery of new filmmakers”, he added.  

Held in the industrial city of Clermont-Ferrand in central France, it boasts more than 160,000 attendants that make it the country’s second biggest festival crowd puller after Cannes.  This year, 76 films were chosen out of 9238 films to compete in the International Competition. ‘720 Degrees’ by Ishtiaque Zico was another film from Bangladesh chosen in this section in 2011.

‘The Last Post Office’ features Ashish Khondker, Shariar Ferdous Shazeeb and Ashok Bepari in the lead roles. The crew member of the film includes Barkat Hossain Polash (Director of Photography) and Ripon Nath (Sound Designer). The film has been produced by Khona Talkies. l
