To transcend the limit of entertainment, four inspiring Audio Visuals (AVs), --- Pride, Courage, Inspiration and Trust---- on the themes were also screened.

Contents for all the AVs are compiled from moments of the historic March 7 speech of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

Moreover, another key attraction of this edition is the screening of the colored version of March 7 speech.
