Smile International Film Festival’s initiative to take meaningful cinema to school across all parts of India is to sensitize children and youth through hand-picked quality films, with assortment of various topics starting from gender equality to environment, family values, friendship, aspirations, dream, self-confidence and importance of education from across the globe.
The festival reached a senior secondary school in Durgapur wherein meaningful movies, beneficial to school children were screened. The children enjoyed the movies and appreciated the values imparted through the films and promised to inculcate them in their daily lives.
SIFFCY (Smile International Film Festival for Children & Youth) is a special film platform devoted to a greater appreciation of meaningful cinemas made for children and youth which can bring change in the society by showcasing those films, supporting emerging filmmakers, recognizing the pioneers and leaders of the similar industry and by promoting the diverse perspectives of Good World Cinema. It caters to young people (aged 6 to 25) with just about every level of interest in film, whether to watch and enjoy, create their own work or take things a stage further and find out more about a career in the film or television industry.
