The 3rd International Children’s Film Festival, organised by the Children’s Film Society Bangladesh and supported by UNICEF and other partners, was held in various venues across Dhaka from January 23-29.
The aim of the festival was to expose children to the cultures and traditions of different countries through film, and to learn about film as a powerful medium of art.
The festival included about 150 short films, feature films, animations and documentaries from all over the world, all of which are suitable for children.
There was a day-long workshop for children, and a competition for Bangladeshi child film-makers.
On the 28th January, there was a special premiere of two short feature films made by prominent Bangladeshi film-makers with UNICEF support, at Dhaka Central Public Library, Shahbag.
UNICEF also assisted 125 children who live outside Dhaka to travel to the capital and enjoy the week-long festival.
A travelling festival will visit regional areas of Bangladesh throughout March.
