Children’s Film Society, India (CFSI) was founded soon after India’s independence by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, whose affection for children is well known. He established CFSI with the hope that indigenous and exclusive cinema for children would stimulate their creativity, compassion and critical thinking. CFSI is an autonomous body, under Ministry of Information & Broadcasting, Government of India committed to producing, exhibiting and distributing children’s films to not only entertain but also encourage children to reflect upon the world around them. In order to continue the efforts to serve a larger number of children, CFSI organizes a festival of their films in all over India, especially targeting North Eastern states. (MExN)
