Nepal Academy Hall


Human Rights Film Center is going to host National Film Conference 2019 from 26th to 28th Bhadra 2076 at Nepal Academy Hall, Kathmandu. 

Despite the long history of film making in Nepal, there is still lack of significant research, technology gap and media centric culture of Nepali films leads to whole industry towards backwards. There is also lack in art and originality in Nepali movies. No books or other publications are found about Nepali film industry analysis and other genres of art. 

Even the Nepalese society has wrong conception about the watching films and film literacy can be rarely found. The outer society has significant concerns on the film literacy and the film occupies the major place in the curriculum of schools and universities. The approach of bringing forward the lagging issues in the Nepalese film industry and discussions on how the film intellectuals can be made part of it is still a hot topic to discuss. 

To address the above problems and analyzing the need of attracting the intellectual community involved in film research, film making, writers, journalists in Nepali Film Industry, HRFC has planned a National Conference. 

The conference will be a platform for the researchers, film makers, paper presenters, critics, journalists, policy makers, HR defenders, and other government bodies in national as well as federal system.

In addition, the publication of study material including the contents from papers presented will be the valuable document for the film aspirants and other governmental purposes.
