All child’s play
Take your children through a journey filled with excitement, drama and adventure at the first-ever film festival for young people organised by Cine Darbaar and Children Film Society of India. The festival will showcase eight children's movies that incorporate folk music and theatrics and take the viewer across India’s diverse cultures and geographies. The films depict life in a village, in a city, some using realism while others have incorporated elements of magic and myth. Other activities include workshops in script writing, cinematography, director’s tools and acting — all conducted by experts.
