Co-existing with nature and friendship are among the themes being explored in a children’s short film festival organised by the Royal Opera House, Mumbai, along with the Looking Glass Film Club, Playydate and Avid Learning.

The virtual festival, from September 10-19, 2021, is showcasing six award-winning short films in different languages, including Malayalam and Hindi.

Asad Lalljee, SVP, Essar Group, CEO, Avid Learning, and Curator, Royal Opera House, Mumbai, says the aim is to promote education in the arts, personal growth, and fulfillment for their young audience. In recent times, they have also held two other virtual festivals, including Sustainability NOW: Wildlife and Environment Film Festival and Lights Camera Music: A Documentary Film Festival.

“In curating the festival, we have made a conscious effort to present, promote and educate the young minds to new media, art and storytelling, each with a distinct set of emotions, lessons and visuals,” Lalljee says.
