Speaking on the occasion, Mr Mahato said, 'State Govt. is aggressively working on spreading education to each. Various Govt projects are there to educate child labour. Education, food and stipend to the child labours, who hardly went to school, can provide them better life'. He said, 'Sabuj Sathi Project should be developed for students for class V- VI as well to help the children of Jangalmahal. Mr Sil requested to CFSI to organize more Children Film Festivals. He said few Directors create movies for children. Govt should take the initiative to show them good movies to enhance their thoughts. Children should read books to increase their knowledge.' He asked the students to ask their teachers to show some movies like Gupi Gyen Bagha Bayen, Hirak Rajar Deshe, Joy Baba Felunath, Sonar Kella, which will help to shape their life. Educationist Arijit Bhatrttacharya, expressed his motivational speech to the students. He said, 'Do not run after whatever everyone is doing. Keep faith on yourself and do what you can do better. Entertain yourself through education. Entertainment is also a media to create job.' The objective of the festival is to encourage and develop the creative thinking of the Children and make them more communicative. The purpose is to give children the exposure to good films to raise their film consciousness. But there are many children particularly the underprivileged ones who don't get the opportunity to see such good films. So this time we introduce our children to good films and they can rejoice the magic of silver screen so that they also develop a sense of film appreciations as well as develop a critical eye towards the art of cinema. Cinema is a powerful medium to reach the minds and heart of children. It can inspire and motivate Children to bring about behavioral and value changes in them. By narrating an audio-visual experiences, films become effective to elicit powerful emotions and a great way to capture a child's imagination by virtue of stories. Cinema is a visual comic that children can relate to. The impact it has on the young minds is tremendous and that's why it becomes important for kids to see good films. The weeklong festival started from March 1 to 7 and a selection of three films were shown to children at various schools in Kolkata. The pictures selected in the festivals were ' Ek Tukro Chand', 'Hirer Angti' and 'Gattu'.UNI BM SJC
