WorldKids Foundation, Kotak Mahindra jointly hold international kids film festival in Delhi

WorldKids Foundation, a non-profit organisation, has joined hands with Kotak Mahindra Bank to showcase the best of national and international children’s films for a wide ranging age group from eight years till young adults of 21 years. The WorldKids International Film Festival is being held in Delhi from July 25 to 31.

The Festival, which was inaugurated by Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on July 25, aims to introduce value based entertainment that promotes learning and inculcates a positive influence on young minds through cinema.

WorldKids Foundation had organised similar Festivals in Mumbai in November 2007 and in Indore in April 2008.

The Festival will also give the young minds an opportunity to voice their opinions and display their inherent talent in film-making and other arts.

Festival Director Manju Singh said, “Our objective behind Kotak WorldKids International Film Festival is to encourage more parents and schools to bring in their children to watch quality cinema from around the world. We wish to introduce children and young adults to a world of compelling films that engages their imagination, sparks their creativity, respects their intelligence, and connects them to global culture. We are looking at the Festival becoming an annual feature in Delhi.”

Commenting on the association with WorldKids Foundation, KVS Manian, Group Head – Retail Liabilities and Branch Banking, Kotak Mahindra Bank, said, “In keeping with our motto to nurture and promote excellence, we have joined hands with WorldKids Foundation to invest in our upcoming generation. The similarity of purpose is what brought us together with WorldKids to present this beautiful opportunity to our children.”

The week-long Kotak Worldkids International Film Festival has also roped in other partners, including Mother Dairy, Amity School, PVR Cinemas, and Svelte.
