Fund raising for additional pro bono non-commercial projects sequel to the film project


In the week preceding the Oscar award ceremonies Feb, 2015 the Director and co-producer of the film Partha S Bhattacharya received a letter from the AMPAS (Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences) library if a script of the movie can be donated for the permanent Core Collection in the Margaret Herrick Library of the Academy. A pamphlet about the Margaret Herrick library was also enclosed. The collections are made accessible for research by film makers, students and writers and materials are not circulated. Photocopying is also not permitted.

An email followed requesting the DVD of the film itself.

The Academy librarian has confirmed in an email that he received the script, DVD, some promo package and that they all are “an excellent collection.”

The Mayor and the Township Council of Livingston honored Partha S Bhattacharya, Director and Co-producer of the film with a citation and a plaque on 18 May, 2015 in a Town hall meeting. The citation said:

The Mayor and Members of the Livingston Township Council proudly honor Livingston resident Partha S Bhattacharya In recognition of his film Rabindranath Tagore: The Poet of Eternity. The documentary chronicles the life and work of Tagore, a prolific poet and author, a pioneer in the education and emancipation of women and who was instrumental introducing Bengali and Indian culture to the Western World. The Township commends Partha on this work, which was selected by the American Motion Picture Academy of Arts and Sciences for inclusion in their permanent Core Collection.
