Fete useful in understanding cinema: Baby

Staff Reporter

MALAPPURAM: Education Minister M.A. Baby said a national-level festival of children's films would be introduced from next year.

The Minister said the national festival would take the children of Kerala to a higher level as part of equipping them to rise to global standards.

Mr. Baby was speaking after inaugurating the valedictory function of the State Children's Educational Film Festival 2010, which concluded at Thunchan Parambu on Tuesday.

Artistic value

He said the three-day festival provided a platform for children to understand the artistic value of cinema.

As many as 210 films, many of them made by children, were screened at the festival conducted by the State Institute for Educational Technology (SIET).

Mr. Baby said all children whose films were screened at the festival deserved awards. He, however, warned teachers and parents to take care against unnecessary controversies arising out of awards.

V.M. Sunanda Kumari, Director of Higher Secondary Education, presided over the function.

Babu Sebastian, State Institute for Educational Technology Director, reviewed the festival and declared the awards. Actor Lakshmi Gopalaswamy gave away the awards at the function. V. Ramachandran, Deputy Director of Education, proposed a vote of thanks.
