Kallola Film Festival Kick-Starts in Odisha

UNICEF Odisha in collaboration with Aaina, an Odisha-based voluntary organization kick-started the Kallola Film Festival 2020. The theme for this year is ‘Children & COVID-19.’

The festival, which will continue till November 25, will showcase short videos and jingles produced with scripts written by around 500 children in child care institutions and government-run schools in the state. The scripts were produced through a series of online workshops organized for these children by film makers in Odisha.

One of the participants, Subham Sahu, 15 years, from Kalahandi district said shared his experience.

“I had a lot of fun learning about the different aspects of writing a script. We also watched movies to understand how an idea is converted into a script. I worked with four other fellow students and we are so happy to see a film made with our script.”
