Imphal, Feb.21 (ANI): School students recently enjoyed films that conveyed a social message at the 3rd Children's Film Festival being held here.
The two-day festival was jointly organised by Manipur Film Development Corporation (MFDC) and the Children's Film Society of India.
Creative Head of Children's Film Society of India, Monica Wahi, said that only six films would be showcased, and all those films are in English language.
"The idea is to show films to children, which are away from the Bollywood and Hollywood films, which are often violent, those are not appropriate for children and are consumorous and superficial. The idea is to show films which make them into humane citizens, make them into non-violent beings and help them also get exposed to different cultures, different ways of beings, so that they are able to understand people across borders, across divides," said Wahi.
Wahi further said the mandate of their organisation is to make films exclusively for children, as they have made around 250 films till now, which makes the largest number of films made so far by any government organisation across the world.
On the first day of the festival, Danish animation flick 'Sunshine Barry and the Disco Worms', Iranian film 'Hayat', Tamil movie 'Malli' and Assamese flick 'Tora' were screened.
School children appreciated the enlightening and inspiring movies.
"I feel very glad and it inspires me and it has many messages in these films," said Mrinalini Devi, a schoolgirl.
The festival, which concludes today, will feature the English film 'The Prince and the Crown' and Tamil flick 'Dost Magarmach' would be screened. (ANI)
