About Us

When the film and television industry was expanding and taking a much bigger and better shape in West Bengal, a group of eminent film personalities came forward and decided to form an association with a basic aim to unite all film and television actors of West Bengal under one roof and also to protect their interests, to foster goodwill and fellowship amongst its members and associates so as to build a better working environment in the industry, they belong to.

The association was named as WEST BENGAL MOTION PICTURES ARTISTS’ FORUM and was formed on 12thMarch, 1998 and later registered under the Trade Union Act on 12thAugust, 1998.

Since then it has not only confined its activities within the industry but also spread its wings to help the society at the time of distress. WBMPAF plays an important role in the industry so as to maintain a healthy working atmosphere by building up cordial relationships between the producers, directors, technicians, channels and all other associates, directly or indirectly related to the industry.

WBMPAF is now an organization with more than 2200 members which consists of eminent film personalities not only of today's generation but also of yesteryears.
