A big kiddie film after 16 yrs
After 16 years, Children’s Film Society of India (CFSI) will be releasing director Rajan Khosa’s film Gattu in April. The last film CFSI released was Santosh Sivan's Halo in 1996.
Nandita Das, CFSI chairperson told, “We are trying to release the film in a big way. But we don’t have a marketing budget. We have sought help from the people in the industry. I have personally given a lot of time and energy in the making and Rajan is a sincere filmmaker.”
Gattu is the official Indian entry for the 62nd Berlin Film Festival starting from February 9 to 19. Director Rajan Khosa said, “Gattu is a film about a small child and how his passion to fulfill his dreams helps him get admission in a school. I am very happy that CFSI is supporting the project.”
Elaborating on CFSI's vision, Das said, “Finally, a film needs to hit the theaters, creating a buzz in the satellite and DVD markets. We need help from distributors and our aim is to reach out to the audience. We have got amazing feedback at the International Children Film Festival.”
