MIAMI, FL – 6/24/2016 (PRESS RELEASE JET) — In what portends to be another giant leap for Bengali cinema expanding globally, BongFlix today announced the completion of production of the first BongFlix Original Programming movie Mi Amor. Produced in collaboration with the University of Miami’s Department of Cinema and private investors from US and India, Mi Amor is path-breaking on many fronts.
Starring Bollywood stars Parambrata and Raima Sen, Mi Amor is directed by famed US-based Bengali director Suman Ghosh and produced under the supervision of award-winning University of Miami filmmaker Sanjeev Chatterjee. Music direction is by Oscar-nominated Bickram Ghosh and photography by Hollywood’s Ed Talavera. The film, shot entirely in Miami, will be ready for global online release on BongFlix in September 2016.
Mi Amor is a love story that unmasks a clash between the physicality and psychology of a relationship at the brink of implosion.
“We are delighted that our dream of bringing the best of Bengali cinema and Hollywood together in a joint production has finally got executed so smoothly and we are thrilled that BongFlix Original Programming is off to such an exciting start, first with the web series Ei Swaharer Swad and now the movie Mi Amor”, said Oney Seal, Founder of BongFlix in Miami.
“It was truly an amazing experience directing an Indo-US team and filming entirely in the city of Miami, my hometown”, said director Suman Ghosh.
With new-generation exhibition platforms like Smart TVs, Digital Set-Top Boxes, and “TV Anywhere” applications generating more than $50 billion of revenue, and OTT/IPTV subscription crossing the 200 million mark, digital distribution models like those pioneered by BongFlix are critical for Bengali/Indian content owners looking to maximize revenue.
