Khijir Hayat Khan is a Bangladeshi citizen who received honors standing from Hamline University for his double major undergraduate degree in Economics and Environmental Studies. Even though it was not possible for Hayat to study film, he still had dreams of becoming a filmmaker. After living in the United States for seven years and working in the financial sector, one fine day Khijir returned to his own country to pursue his dreams. Since then, he has directed two feature films in the past four years. He has joined the MDM Program to enhance his abilities, looking to make future films. He believes a time is not far off when the film and game industries will walk together as one. Khijir wants to be a frontrunner in that road ahead.
