Amongst a handful of young producers from Bangladesh, Sara is the first Bangladeshi to be in EAVE European Producers Workshop on scholarship from the CNC. Her first feature-length creative documentary won the GRAND PRIX at 35th Cinema du reel Festival and was the curtain-opener at Dok-Leipzig. An architect-turned-filmmaker, Sara worked as Head of Campaigns in a leading multinational producing 30+ TVCs with top-chart TVC-makers. As a creative producer, she explored different aspects of production including conceptualization, creative design, creative writing and photography. Today Sara runs her own production studio, BEGINNING, which operates as a local production company for NHK Japan; she has done commissioned projects for BRAC, Pathways of Women Empowerment, H&M, etc.
