While this year presented us with the unexpected, we are still forever grateful for the opportunities that made us better and gave us a chance to provide a platform to the talented children, young people and teachers.

We conducted 30 workshops and provided training to a total of 740 children, 275 young people and 65 teachers through its 5-day Filmmaking workshops in 10 schools and 5 universities of Lahore and Faisalabad. As a result of the workshops, 91 short films were made, released online and in cinemas, based on breaking gender stereotypes.

Watch films made by children here, and films made by youth here.

The short films made by children and young people during the 5-day Filmmaking Workshop were screened at schools and universities showcase events. The community screening events at schools were also attended by parents who appreciated the efforts and talents of their children.

We also initiated bi-weekly Film Clubs in schools which screened short films made by and for children, as an opportunity to create a discussion about breaking gender stereotypes.

This year, The Little Art launched the digital version of Lahore International Children's Film Festival. The online streaming festival ran on Starzplay by Cinepax and presented 158 films from 24 countries in 16 languages.

Covid19 brought multiple challenges for everyone globally. Quick adjustments and improvisations became the highlight of everyone's lives. Among it all, it was vital that we do something to keep our audience cope with the downside of the virus.

We launched Digital ArtBeat which received an immensely positive response in the form of 4880 artworks online. The colours of survival brought life to all of us during the tough time.
We also launched TLA Live Talks with the artist community including painters, writers, filmmakers, dancers, calligraphers, musicians, storytellers and the #25under25Award
Finalists. The conversations with exceptionally talented people was a great way for parents, children and young people to get to know about the experiences of the artists who broke societal stereotypes to choose a less popular and successful path in their lives.
