As I reported in this post on the postcards of the 50th Annievrsary of Myanmar motion pictures, first ever Burmese film titled “Love and Liqueur” | “မေတ္တာနှင့်သူရာ” was premiered on screen on 13 Oct 1920 and turning 100 year today.  Together with the Committee for Organizing the Centenary of Myanmar Films, Myanmar Post issues the stamp to commemorate the celebration.  The stamp design, provided by Ministry of Information, features Arriflex camera and rollfilm.  Myanmar Post issued the official First Day Covers also.  Originally, MP planned to issues postcards but it was cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.  In 1995, the the commemorative stamp for the celebration of Diamond Jubilee was also issued.  So, this is the second time issued for Myanmar Films.
