Over 40,000 students are expected to attend the festival where CFSI’s children’s movies will be screened.

A total of 24 CFSI’s children’s movies will be screened at the three-day festival on the 12 screens provided. Three shows will be held per day at each screen.

The opening film of NCFF is ‘Shanu – The Optimist’ directed by KNT Sastry, produced by CFSI in 2016. Other films that will be screened at the children’s film festival include Akkineni Kutuma Rao’s ‘Amulyam’, ‘Bandu Boxer’, ‘Bhago Bhoot’, ‘Chota Sipahi’, ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ and ‘Pappu ki Pugdandi’.

The aim of the film festival that was first held in 2014 in Delhi and in 2016 in Jaipur is not just to expose a number of children to quality cinema, but also to introduce novel elements beyond films.
