The Little Art is happy to welcome you all to the 9th edition of Lahore International Children’s Film Festival 2017, celebrating the experience of global cinema for children in Pakistan. This year we present an even more exciting program with some of the best films made for, by and about children and young people from around the world.

Lahore International Children’s Film Festival (LICFF) is one of the largest children’s film festivals in the Pakistan inclusive for all children irrespective of their socio-economic backgrounds. The festival offers a diverse slate of programming from Pakistan and around the globe, using the power of film not just to entertain children, youth and parents but also to foster new ideas, cultural values and complex issues facing young people today.

Dearest Children, Young people, Families, Teachers and Film Buffs!
I welcome you all to the Lahore International Children’s Film Festival 2017. We will be presenting, yet again the best of children’s cinema brought to Pakistan from all over the globe.
I am so proud to be part of this initiative of Lahore International Children’s Film Festival, where we consistently strive to provide young people with a platform where they can come together and watch stories unfold on the cinema screens before them. It is truly a magical experience to indulge in films that take us into different worlds where we are able to see and meet new people and be part of the wonderful tales from unseen parts of the world.
LICFF not only takes children on exciting journeys but also provokes the community of adults to think in different perspectives and to become closer to the lives of our youth.
I would like to thank all the young directors for their contribution to the festival, our spectacular festival team, our esteemed jury and partners who contributed to this venture over the years and helped us grow. We have put in our love and passion to create the program for this year. I hope you all enjoy, learn, grow and leave with a shift of perspective to see the world in a new light.

Warm Welcome to the LICFF 2017

Dear Children, Young people, Parents, Teachers and Film Enthusiasts!

I welcome you all to the 9th Lahore International Children’s Film Festival (LICFF) 2017, the biggest annual film festival in Pakistan for children and young audiences. The goal of the LICFF each year, is to bring some of the best international films made by, about and for children to Pakistan to promote, peace, creativity, world cultures and arts. We collaborate with the finest cinemas and public auditoriums to bring you an experience, which is one of its kinds. The International Children Film Festival is an initiative of The Little Art.

Established in 2007, The Little Art is a non-profit arts education organization that uses the medium of art to promote social values among children and young adults in Pakistan. Since the inception of the festival in 2008, we have managed to screen over 713 films from nearly 80 countries, to over 410,050 children. The festival has been organized in cities like Lahore, Karachi, Islamabad, Multan, Peshawar, Faisalabad, Gilgit Baltistan, Jamshoro & Tando Jam in Interior Sindh and Bhakkar in rural Punjab.

We are continuously growing. It is a dream come true to see that the festival has been expanding each year to reach out to children from various parts of Pakistan. It is our 9th year in Lahore and we just finished our 7th Karachi International Children’s Film Festival and entertained around 10,000 children from more than 16 schools.

The program we are bringing this year is really interesting, as the movies selected have gone through multiple screenings before the final selection by the jury. We received record submissions from all over the world of nearly about 2734 films from 111 countries and we have finalized 111 best films from 34 countries in 19 languages.
This Festival is about YOU, and it’s about the World. From the disarmingly intimate to the startlingly epic, these new films will open your eyes, touch your hearts and blow your minds away. They also speak of the universal experiences of being human and the world we live in today.

I look forward to welcoming you at the LICFF!
Let’s celebrate education with the magic of cinema, Enjoy every second of the stories being told, because after all it’s YOUR Festival!
