Ahmedabad International Children Film Festival

24-Dec-2021 To 26-Dec-2021

Ahmedabad , India

Ahmedabad International Children Film Festival 2019 got tremendous success with an overwhelming response in its first year.  With a total 40 entries, 17 films of 7 languages were selected to be screened at the festival at Ahmedabad that too free of cost.  This is the platform where Children content from across the world are coming together. In 2020 with the second edition, there were 82 entries with 12 languages but, due to a pandemic situation, the festival was hosted online. This year AICFF just opened the festival for the entries and within 15 days it is more than 32 entries, from 12 countries across the world and as the last date of submission is 30th November 2021, AICFF is going to break their record of receiving entries. This year the festival will be screening movies online on the official Youtube channel. The festival will be held on 24, 25 and 26th December 2021, with screenings of selected films online.  If the festival has a better situation in India, they may shift the festival from online to offline and may have on ground mega event happening at the hosting city, Ahmedabad. This is purely based on the pandemic situation and based on the local authority’s approval including the Government of India and State Government.
