Hello little folks, let’s get together to celebrate Children’s Day (which is 14th November, birthday of chacha Nehru) by watching some lovable films, having yummy eats and talking and sharing with other friends. So, come along with siblings, cousins, your domestic helps children and friends from your colony and in the city, for a Film Festival especially for YOU!

After watching each film, we will have a fun, light-hearted chat about what we liked or about an inspiring lesson or message from the film. Also, there will be some very exciting prizes for you for sharing your thoughts with everyone!!

We welcome you to join us for the screenings of:

Jadui Pankh (Hindi, 60 mins) by Nitin Das – Jadui Pankh is made up of 7 interlinked stories, a collection of 7 funny short films rolled into one movie. These are stories of magic and adventure, of friendship and mischief, of courage and a clever ghost. These films take you to an unusual world through the eyes of children.

Lukka Chhuppi (Hindi, 87 mins) - the world’s first children’s feature film fully shot in Ladakh by Vinod Ganatra – A thriller, the film is about a servant boy who is kidnapped for no apparent reason and two slightly elder boys who venture out to save him. Driven by twists and turns, it heads for a climax in the middle of the magnificent Hamis festival and Matho Monastery of Ladakh.

Stanley Ka Dabba (Hindi, 96 mins) by Amole Gupte– Stanley studies in an all-boys Holy Family High School in Andheri East, Mumbai. While his class-mates bring their very own Tiffin-boxes, Stanley does not do so on the pretext that his mother is away and shares food with his friends much to the chagrin of the Hindi teacher, who virtually forces children to share their food with him. With extra classes being imposed on both students and teachers, and the recess-breaks being doubled, parents are also forced to pack more food in lunch-boxes.  When students evade the Hindi teacher and continue sharing food with Stanley, he calls the latter aside and warns him that he cannot attend school until and unless he brings his own food.
