The nine-day International Children's Film Festival held at CMS Kanpur Road Campus auditorium from 4 to 12 April was a wonderful delight for children. It not only provided them good and healthy entertainment after the annual Examinations but also inspired them towards the performing arts-television, cinema and theatre - and opened before them a whole range of new possibilities in career from acting, singing, music, production, direction and so on. It was the biggest film festival, one of a kind, crossing the borders of race and religion and instilling a new sense of globalism in the minds of children. In the expert direction of Mr Varghese Kurian, Head of CMS Computer and Films Division, and his merry band of workers, the Festival flew like a colourful bird in full plumage spreading light and energy in all directions.
