Message from the Chairperson

Dear Children and lovers of children’s cinema,


Welcome to the world of cinema that is specially brought to you, children, and to you, grown-ups, who still enjoy the child in you. We have a very special gift for you that is going to hit the cinemas all over the country, called Gattu. You might have already heard of him.

It is a charming story of a street kid named Gattu, who dares to dream and finds interesting way of fulfilling it. He tells us that dreams aren’t impossible when the desire is strong! He is naughty, smart and endearing. If you want to fly a kite with him, then lagalo pech and go for it! He is waiting to meet you in theatres on the 20th of July 2012. I am sure you will not keep him waiting beyond that. Once you see the film and if it brings a big smile to your face, don’t forget to spread the word and write to us, to give us your feedback.

This is my last gift to you, before I complete my 3 year tenure as a Chairperson and give the baton to the next person who will take the organization to greater heights, to ensure that CFSI fulfills its mandate of producing, supporting and distributing quality children’s films. It has been a great learning experience for me and despite many challenges, I have had exciting times here at CFSI. In the coming months, you will see many wonderful films coming out of our bouquet- Goopi Gawaiiya, Bagha Bajaiiya by Shilpa Ranade, Alagelu by Prithvi Konanur, Kaphal by Batul Mukhtiar, Ebegetiya by Neeraj Suji

I hope you will continue to be a friend of CFSI, so that we can continue to entertain and enrich you with amazing films that will be a memorable experience for you.

With my very best wishes and see you in the theatres on the 20th of July 2012.

Warm regards,

Nandita Das
