A record number of 123 entries had been received for the “Little Director”, a special section that will, for the first time, showcase films made by children from India and around the world in the prestigious International Children’s Film Festival of India (ICFFI).

In commemoration of 100 years of Indian cinema, this section is part of the first time special retrospective on Best Children’s Films that is slated to be screened at the 18th International Children’s Film Festival, popularly known as The Golden Elephant.

To be held in Hyderabad from November 14-20, the 18th ICFFI will mark several firsts with respect to showcasing children’s films.  For the first time, films had been sourced from prestigious International Children’s Film Festivals.

As a first time initiative, a specially curated package of the best of Indian children’s films would showcase 15 National Award winning and classic Indian Children’s films.

Special attention had been given to the animation section in the 18th ICFFI where 285 films had been received. Also for the first time, a separate category of Competitive Section for animation films had been introduced.

The children’s film festival would have a country focus retrospective of Czech Films.

Meanwhile, the upcoming 44th International Film Festival of India, to be held from Nov 20 – 30 at Panaji, Goa is also all set to have a number of first time screenings to its credit. The festival would provide a platform to screen, for the first time, films on Nobel Prize winners Nelson Mandela, A Long Walk to Freedom, and Lech Walesa, Walesa: Man of Hope. For the first time in over a decade, an Afghan film titled A Man’s Desire For a Fifth Wife will be screened in the Cinema of the World section.
