International Children's Film Festival India
(ICFFI)
also
popularly known as The Golden Elephant
is a biennial festival that strives to bring the most delightful and
imaginative national and international children's cinema to young audiences in
India. Outstanding features, shorts, live action and animation films are
screened over seven days of festive celebrations, attended by more than one
hundred thousand children and hundreds of film professionals from across the
world.

 

ICFFI is
organized by Children's Film Society India (CFSI) - a national government body
committed to nurturing a dynamic children's film culture in the country. Since
its inception in 1955, CFSI has been producing, exhibiting and distributing
exclusive, entertaining and enriching content for children.

 

Every two years, the festival begins
on 14th November, the birth date of Jawaharlal Nehru - India's first
Prime Minister - also fondly referred to as Chacha
Nehru
(Uncle Nehru), because of his love for children. Nehru established
CFSI soon after India's independence with the hope that indigenous and
exclusive cinema for children would stimulate their creativity, compassion and
critical thinking. It is this vision of Jawaharlal Nehru that guides ICFFI.

 

In a world that is cluttered with
consumerist & often violent content for children, ICFFI is committed to
promoting cinema that is humane and non-violent, and yet delightful and fun!
Special care is taken to program films that cultivate an understanding of other
cultures, lives and experiences and encourage children to reflect on the world
around. Workshops and open forums at the festival aim towards stimulating
critical appreciation and creative pursuit of cinematic arts amongst young
people. The festival also supports the work of children's filmmakers by
rewarding them for their dedication and talent.

 

ICFFI is one of the largest and most
colourful children's film festivals in the world. A unique feature of the
festival is its audience: more than a hundred thousand children travel from little
villages and towns from across India to view high quality international
children's cinema that they would never be exposed to otherwise. Here they rub
shoulders with other kids, eminent guests and directors from different parts of
the world. ICFFI is dedicated to these little delegates and to those
imaginative film-makers who attempt to make films for the toughest audience of
all - children!

 

We are happy to announce the 17th
edition of ICFFI: 14th to 20th November 2011. The
festival will have three Competition Sections: Competition International, Competition India, Competition Little
Directors
, apart from special screenings in the Non-Competition Sections: Children's World, The Swedish Pitara, Best
of CFSI
.
