Mar 9, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio) Bengali Cinema is considered as the most elite, artistic and merited with the highest quality script among the South Asian films. History of the Bengali cinema is enriched by the directors like Satyajit Ray, who was an Academy Honorary Award winner, and the recipient of India and France's greatest civilian honours, the Bharat Ratna and Legion of Honor respectively, and Mrinal Sen, who is the recipient of the French distinction of Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters and the Russian Order of Friendship.
Despite the international merit and potential market outside India, no initiative was hitherto taken to market the Bengali films internationally.
deadlock has been broken by databazaar MEDIA VENTURES LLC which has taken the initiatives of
distributing Bengali Movies in North America through Netflix,
BlockBluster, Amazon, Best Buy, ITunes, Target and many more
