        Myform = MyModelForm(user=request.user)
        return render(request,'about.html',{'Myform':Myform})

select django form :

class MyModelForm(ModelForm):
    def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
        # extract "user" from kwrags (passed upon form init)
        if 'user' in kwargs:
            self.user = kwargs.pop('user')
        super(MyModelForm, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs)
        # generate the choices as (display, value). Display is the one that'll be shown to user, value is the one that'll be sent upon submitting (the "value" attribute of <option>)
        choices = MyModel.objects.filter(user=self.user).values_list('upload', 'id')
        self.fields['upload'].widget = Select(choices=choices)

    class Meta:
