Popularly known as The Golden Elephant, this biennial festival brings outstanding features, animation and shorts to young audiences in India. Since its beginnings in the 1950s, the festival has always started every other year on 14 November, the birth date of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, India’s first prime minister, who believed that indigenous cinema for children would help to stimulate their critical faculties, creativity and sense of compassion. Screenings are attended by more than one hundred thousand children – as well as film professionals. This is the 18th edition of ICFFI, with approximately 150 films from across the world.
