Morshedul Islam Born in 1958 in Dhaka, Bangladesh, Morshedul Islam completed his Bachelor and Masters degree in Pharmacy from Dhaka University. After participating in a film-appreciation course at the Bangladesh Film Institute and Archive, he made his first film 'Agami' (1982), a short fictional narrative about the great War of Liberation of his country. 'Agami' won the 'Silver Peacock' award for best direction in the 10th International Film Festival of India (1985) and the National Award for the best short film. The success of 'Agami', the first independent short film of the country, led the way for establishing the alternative film movement in Bangladesh.
Morshedul Islam has since made several films including, among others, his most aclaimed 'Chaka' (1993) winner of numerous awards in film festivals across Europe, 'Dipu Number Two', and 'Dukaki'.
Morshedul Islam is currently the President of the Bangladesh Federation of Film Societies.
