Once Upon a Film – 2nd Inter-School National Filmmaking Competition
The Little Art invites under 18 young people to participate in the 2nd Inter-school National Filmmaking Competition “Once Upon a Film”. Through this competition, we aim to give students, young and teens to showcase the talent of filmmaking in Lahore International Children’s Film Festival and earn recognition for them while representing their schools.
Films are a great source of entertainment and education especially for children and youth. There are immense benefits in experiencing a good film, it introduces us to the world we are living in, exposes us to cultural diversity and promote imagination and critical thinking.
Lahore International Children’s Film Festival, a project of The Little Art, has been bringing some of the world’s best films, made for, by and about children and youth to Pakistan since 2007. The Festival has been pivotal to entertain, inspire and education thousands of children in several cities across Pakistan.
The process of filmmaking on the other hand also offers great learning opportunities to children. Filmmaking being a great blend of various art forms, which also addresses science and sports, provide children multi-dimensional benefits. They polish soft-skills such as leadership, collaboration, articulation and artistic development in the process.
