I wrote about film related websites in Nepal in August of 2010. The websites reviewed at that time are still in operation. Some have improved in their quality and others have remained the same.
The sites I reviewed were:
With increased number of films being made in recent time, film related websites are also in increasing trends. I have reviewed some film related websites.
The first film related magazine in Nepal was ‘Kamana‘ but they never made a good enough website to talk about. The group that publishes Kamana is not that interested in website and they are pretty happy with the printed publication. The screenshot on the right speaks volumes on its online presence.
As far as I know, the first dedicated film related website was filmnepal.com. The site is still there but it doesn’t get updated that frequently. The site is full of age-old stories that no one is interested in.
