GUWAHATI, March 22 - A three-day National Children�s Film Festival (NCFF) organised by Children�s Film Society India (CSFI) in association with Smile Foundation was inaugurated at the Srimanta Sankaradeva Kalakshetra here on Tuesday.

The inauguration was done by a large number of children from across the North East in presence of eminent personalities of the Assamese film industry and distinguished guests.

�We would like to bring all the libraries of CFSI films to the children of the North East in their own languages, and to begin with, we have selected a hundred best films and are going to dub those in six major languages of the north-eastern states and take them to every village and every district of the region,� Dr Shravan Kumar, CEO, CFSI, told The Assam Tribune.

Acknowledging that the North East has a rich history of film-making and has produced many noted directors and artistes in the industry, Dr Kumar said that with film-making ingrained to the culture of the region, CFSI is happy to host the three-day National Film Festival in Guwahati.

�Our objective is to sensitise the children of Assam and other north-eastern states through meaningful films and film-related workshops,� he added.

CFSI has been organising National Children�s Film Festival in different parts of India for the last few years. The Guwahati edition of the festival consists of different capacity building activities and workshops on film-making, script writing and sand animation for children.

�CFSI promotes films that provide healthy and wholesome entertainment for children to broaden their prospective and encourage them to reflect on the world around. With an enviable catalogue of 250 films in ten different languages, CFSI remains the prime producer of children�s films in South Asia,� Dr Kumar said.

CFSI has joined hands with Smile Foundation, a national-level development organisation that works for children�s health and education, to host the National Children�s Film Festival in Guwahati.

Today�s screening of two films � The Prince and the Crown of Stone (English) and Kafel Wild Berries (Hindi) at 11 am and 2 pm respectively � elicited enthusiastic response from the children. A workshop on sand animation was another highlight of today�s programmes.

Tomorrow, Assamese film Ebegetia, Hindi film Papu ki Pubadgandi and Mizo film Kimas Lodo will be screened.
