Dr Bhupen Hazarika founded the Gauhati Cine Club on April 26, 1965 along with a handful of film lovers, critics, and writers, after they felt that people of Assam and the Northeast were not getting enough of world cinema!
Since then, they have been doing yeoman’s service in bringing to cine lovers movies from around the globe. The society has been organizing film appreciation courses with experts from the field, holding workshops on film craft and publishing books on films. Some of their publications are:
Jyotiprasad as a Filmmaker
Perspectives on Cinema of Assam
