Information Minister Dr. Hasan Mahmud said the government will provide Tk 10 crore every year to make movies. 

He informed the reporters after a meeting at the secretariat on Tuesday afternoon.

The Information Minister said, “After talking to the Prime Minister, we have decided, where earlier the donation was Tk 5 crore, this year it will be Tk 10 crore.”

We are going to change the policies which is almost finalized.  Each year, 15 to 16 movies will be made with this donation, he also said.

Mentioning that the movies that will be made with the donation must be released in halls, Dr. Hasan Mahmud said, “Earlier, donation movies would not release in halls and sold to another person where the halls could not get any movies.”

Many halls are now closed. If there is no halls then there will be no movie. The movie will be saved if the hall survives, he added.
