The Smile Festival in Dehli not only shifted dates, but also shifted its ambition.
SIFFCY, aka the Smile Festival and a beacon for children’s film culture in Asia, has decided to leave behind its regular December dates and will now take place from 24-30 April, 2022. Director Jitendra Mishra: “Considering the current uncertain pandemic situation in India, we plan to host the festival in a hybrid format – largely online – with a new look and a new ambition. With this online festival, we committed to address wider audiences, not just in a few cities but reaching out to children and youngsters across the country.”
