Sultana’s Dream:

Sultana’s Dream is a funding & mentorship grant to empower, promote & support the next generation of women filmmakers and storytellers in Bangladesh, creating powerful, thought-provoking works of fiction and non-fiction. We want to promote creative independence and support female filmmakers to diversify the visual world with the innovation and uniqueness of their female gaze. These stories will express the otherwise and untold urgent expression of the human condition, which can foster multiplicity of agency in storytelling. We feel it is important to take back our narratives and tell our stories of resistance and survival. “Breaking the silence” is our first initiative.
