festival is to nurture & showcase young talent. He further revealed that it
is always intriguing to see the amazing way a child’s mind works.

particularly touched by the two short films showcased at the press conference,
namely Kooky & Freeze. The “Keep Calm & Carry On
documentary bared the power & strength of simple yet profound words during
difficult times. The Games Maker is particularly interesting as the
movie is about a child who develops an ingenious game & the problem he
faces.
“I am…” a movie made by the
students of Dubai Center for Special Needs is perhaps one of the most
endearing film to be showcased in the festival is “I am…”, because of the
special  children involved in the film
making. Mr. Deepak Jain mentioned that among the most dramatic changes

call for submission. He considered the participation of Emirati girls studying
in Latifa School for Girls, Dubai to be one of the best changes he has
witnessed.
