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

We are so excited to present the 8th Lahore International Children’s Film Festival. We are proud that through the past 7 editions, LICFF has become one of the most favorite festivals in the cultural life of youth and children in Pakistan.

Storytelling is unique in films, as it speaks to children in a visual language that they can relate to and learn from. Majority of the festival showcase presents films which are creative, and promote imagination to children at various levels. These are tasteful in design, music and tell stories that help children to become global citizens.

The program for this year is really interesting, as we had record submissions from all over the world – and also featuring some of the best selected films from last years of LICFF. The festival received nearly 1070 from 67 countries and we curated a show of 80 best films 26 Countries.

LICFF Young – Film making competition for children and youth is also growing in terms of the quality and the number of films submitted each year. Young students from all over Pakistan are telling stories through film and are being screened in cinemas at the festival. Our film workshops “Once Upon a Film” our film workshops program is building the capacity of children in not only cities but also remote areas to understand the art of storytelling through moving images.

It is the 8th year we are continuously growing in outreach, taking the festival to remote areas where children are in most need of exposure to creativity. It is a dream come true to see that the festival is expanding each year to reach children from various parts of Pakistan. We just held 6th Karachi International Children’s Film Festival, and this year with the support of Danish embassy we have taken the festival events and film workshops to Jamshoro and Tando Jam in interior Sindh and Bhakkar in South Punjab.

We are thankful to CKU for extending their support for outreach of the festival and supporting the creative workshops.  I am also thankful to all the partners and sponsors for adding value and to make it all possible.

I am always pleased to work with The Little Art, a creative and visionary bunch of young people who put in their hearts to produce the festival each year.

We hope to have your support in contributing to the artistic and cultural life for children in Pakistan. I welcome you to enjoy and celebrate the experience of the 8th Lahore International Children’s Film Festival!

Let’s celebrate education with the magic of cinema!

At Centre for Culture and Development (CKU) we believe that art, culture and creativity are determining factors for democratization. It is important that children in Pakistan get the chance to use arts and cultural experiences rooted in cultural values.Festivals such as The Lahore International Film Festival provide cultural space, which is vital for the intellectual development of children and youth.

I am very pleased that The Little Art in collaboration with the Royal Danish Embassy is organizing its 8th Lahore International Children’s Film Festival.

The vision of aspiring education through films and media literacy is to put individuals in charge of their own learning. It will empower them to take an active rather than a passive role in acquiring new knowledge and skills.

Denmark prioritises films for children and youth and acknowledges a child’s right to experience artistic reflection on the realities of life. We believe that the best of cinema stirs and moves the heart and mind.

I am happy to see a festival that is not only a source of cultural development and entertainment, but is also working as an active instrument to educate and inspire the young minds of Pakistan. Films with peaceful and inspiring messages can bring the people of different countries closer on the basis of humanity. It has the potential to become a medium for peace-building among nations and cultures and can do wonders for the human society by bridging the differences.

I hope that 8th LICFF will promote inspiration among children to develop their creativity and a culture of social harmony.

I extend my best wishes for the festival, and hope that the initiative grows each year.

Welcome to Cinepax, children’s film festival 2016. We take pride in being the favorite cinema chain of Pakistan and aim to provide outstanding family entertainment to our customers.

Pakistan is home to rich culture and classic music from Mughal era. Unfortunately in the recent decades we have not emphasized on the cinema driven entertainment resulting in deterioration of cinema in adjacent industries.

Cinepax has been the market leader in reviving cinema culture in Pakistan. With 28 screens at 11 location across 8 cities, cinepax is the biggest cinema company in Pakistan. Up keeping the same market leader tradition Cinepax holds children’s film festival across Pakistan. Children of Lahore are going to be benefiting for this festival from Nov 21st to Nov 26th, 2016.

We shall be exhibiting several movies received from 67 countries exclusively from children’s chosen from 1080 films aging from 6 to 14 years. We hope to host approximately 10,000 children only in the city of Lahore.

We pay our respect to our cinema patrons, customers and loyalty program members besides honorable members of the armed forces and senior citizens.

We thank you for your patronage.

Jury Messages

I was left speech bound by the animated films in the festival and it is always a great experience to see such creative and imaginative ideas by filmmakers. Golden bird turned out to be my most favorite of films this year due to it’s unique style and culture relevance.

It was an extraordinary presentation of films at the festival this year especially the international selection which were exceptionally innovative. I would like to appreciate the great efforts of The Little Art and wish victory for their initiative for children in Pakistan.

wajiha
These are not merely films for children but a gateway to open their minds to new ideas. Through moving images they will be able to understand not only what is on screen but also what is beyond the frame; stories of life, experiences and relationships.
