Announcing the Winners – 9th LICFF & LICFF Young

2734 films came to our doorstep from 111 countries. Each year the Festival grew in attracting the films from all over the world, but we were truly surprised this year. Just a little comparison to make you understand, last year we received 1180 films in total. Yes, you got it now!

We screened best 111 films from 39 countries in 19 languages at 9th Lahore International Children’s Film Festival (LICFF) 2017 and , sister chapter of LICFF, International Children’s Film Festival Karachi 2017

We are delighted to announce the results of 9th LICFF competition and #LICFFYoung Filmmaking Competition



It was an extraordinary presentation of films at the festival this year especially the international selections that 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.
Asghar Nadeem Syed, Playwright/Drama serial writer
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.
Wajiha Raza Rizvi
I was left speech bound by the selected films in the festival and it is always a great experience to see such creative and imaginative ideas by filmmakers.
