Filmy treat awaits schoolchildren

Filmy treat awaits schoolchildren

Like the previous years, this time too, the film festival has a curated package for children to feast.

The package, comprising two German and two Indian children films, awaits young adults. A special arrangement is being made for school students to view these films at Lavanya Theatre, venue of theweek-long film festival.

Schools, that wish to send students above 10 years of age for morning shows (at 9.30 and 11.30 am), may contact Children’s Section coordinator G Venkataswamy on 73531 38749.
Schools, will, however, have to arrange their own transport. 

Aspiring to be Kalam
Nila Madhab Panda’s not- to-be-missed ‘I am Kalam’ promises to be a show stealer. It is awe-inspiring and a touching tale of a precocious tea vending boy at a dhaba, who aspires to be educated and tries to emulate former President Kalam. Oscar-nominee Amole Gupte's ‘Stanley ka Dhabba’ (Stanley’s Tiffin Box) is about a boy who eats from his friend’s lunch box and a strict teacher who would not allow it, another heart-warming saga that will steal children’s hearts.

Likewise, German film ‘Lilli the Witch 2 – The Journey to Mandolan,’ by Harald Sicheritz tells the adventures of Lilli, a superwitch, visiting India and set to take children into a whole new world of fun, frolic and adventure.

Besides joining Lilli, in her enterprising escapades, join Vickie the mighty Viking by Michael Herbig as he, with sharp and imaginative mind, helps his fellows take on rival Viking Lord Sven the Terrible and wriggle them out of many tight situations.
