There is immense power that Cinema holds in shaping young minds and I am delighted to witness it here. This is the first of its kind Film Festival being organised in Gandhinagar and I am truly happy to be part of it.
Cinema is a powerful medium to reach the minds and hearts of children. Cinema can inspire and motivate Children to bring about behavioral and value changes in them. By narrating an audio-visual experience, Films become effective to elicit powerful emotions and a great way to capture a child’s imagination by virtue of stories.
Organised over 3 days from Dec 8-10, 2016 at City Pulse Campus. This was the first of it’s kind CFSI Film Bonanza held at Gandhinagar. CFSI film bonanza also covered neighbouring city of Ahmedabad with a school outreach drive touching nearly 300 schools. Most of the leading schools including Government, Municipal, Public, Private as well as run by NGOs were reached.
The coming together of so many children, mingling over Children’s Films and workshops created a perfect Festival atmosphere.
