Kolkata, Jun 11 (IBNS): Edyoo.com, an online marketplace for parents of school-going children for all learning, education and development products and services, had presented film festival between May 19 and Jun 10 across 11 cities, including Bengaluru, Mumbai, NCR and Hyderabad.
In the backdrop of this festival, Edyoo had introduced an innovative category, The Children Make your Movie Contest, which allowed kids across the country to showcase their movie-making talent, that they created using their phones or professional video-cameras.
The contest was open to three age groups- less than 13 years, 13-15 years, and 16-18 years- with the duration of each film being within 1-5 minutes.
Entries were accepted in English, Hindi, and any other regional language including Kannada, Marathi, Telugu and Tamil.
Children could make groups of 3-5 to put the movie together.
Commenting on this innovation, Edyoo CEO and co-founder Rakshit Kejriwal said: “Children are our future and the prism through which they view things is vastly different from us adults. The more you work with them, the more you witness their free thinking and unhindered creativity.
"A contest like this allows them to contribute their point of view to the adult society and express their unbounded thoughts through visuals."
