Films based on various social and cultural themes were shown to leave a lasting impression on children's' minds.

Launched at the Anuradha Cine Complex in Guwahati, the festival will continue in nine other districts of the state.

"We have created an atmosphere where we can show the students good films and they can have exposure to different kind of culture. If we are showing them international films, they will get to know about the different cultures of different countries, and likewise, regional films will give them a good exposure of the culture of different states," said Bobita Sharma, Chairman, Assam State Film Finance Development Corporation

"I am very happy to attend the film festival. My teachers referred us to this festival. I am excited to watch the films scheduled for tomorrow also," said Rajdeep, a student.

Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi, howver, expressed his happiness over two Assamese films being selected for the 60th National Film Awards in New Delhi.

"It's the recognition of the state. There is a lot of talent among our state. And today, the Government of Assam is trying to help them," said Gogoi.
