IKFF introduces a child to the world. This develops empathy, confidence and
a curiosity in kids. It also gives them a rich global perspective. Students cross social barriers like language and intercultural living. The festival throws light on important issues like child’s emotions, psychology, family dynamics, dreams,fears, class, race, gender conflicts and more. We do it in the form of stories.This makes IKFF an exciting and engaging learning experience.
This year, due to the pandemic, we will be hosting IKFF 2020 on our very own platform, Krayon TV, available for Android, iOS and Web. To watch the films, all you have to do is register with a one time price of 299 here (link to buy IKFF) and you will be able to access all of the exclusive films, events and workshops for the entire month.
There are a host of reasons why we felt conceiving IKFF was critical and necessary. Here are nine of them.
Cinema is often considered as mere entertainment. But we see cinema as an educational tool. Like paintings, sports and books. Good cinema has a good impact on a child’s educational and emotional growth. And it was missing from a child’s curriculum.
Stories in cinema have a way of conveying complex feelings, experiences and lessons in an easy and personal way.
The impact of audio visuals is great on kids. They engage and register information when they can see it and hear it.
IKFF is a window to global cultures, people, their experiences and perspectives.
There is a dearth of good content specially designed for kids.
Students in remote areas don’t have access to any good content.
For a lot of these kids, IKFF introduces them to the world for the first time.
Often, film festivals limit themselves to big cities. IKFF goes everywhere.
It’s difficult to get kids to local film festivals. Sometimes the content is not meant for them or they are not scheduled as per a child’s school timings.
IKFF is hosted by schools in their premises, which means we get world cinema to the kids.
Watching and creating good cinema allows a child to express their feelings and be uniquely themselves. Cinema becomes an interesting way to initiate dialogue with students.
International Kids Film Festival (IKFF) is a first of its kind global film festival
hosted by schools and organisations working towards the betterment and welfare of children. IKFF endeavours to introduce kids to the magic of world cinema, and use the power of stories to educate, inspire and entertain them.
