Enlighten Film Society organises Animation film fest

MUMBAI: Here?s good news for fans of animation films. Starting 6 February, the Enlighten Film Society has organised a film festival especially for animation film aficionados. Films like Pinocchio, Up and Toystory-3 among others will be screened.

The festival, that will go on till 27 February, will screen films every Friday and Sunday.

At NCPA, UP will be screened on 13 February, 18 February will have the screening of Wall- E . Toy Story -3 will be shown on 20 February and 25 February will see the screening of Pinocchio.

At Cinemax Pinocchio will be screened on 6 February and UP on 13 February. While on 20 February Toy Story -3 will be screened, Wall-E will show on 27 February.

Says founder of the Enlighten Film Society Pranav Ashar, ?From Miyazaki to Disney, animation, as a genre, has redefined the idea of storytelling. It also happens to be genre that is experiencing a revolution of ideas, narratives, technology, visuals and above all entertainment. The genre has been favourite of a two-year-old, 20-year-old and also 82-year-old. Since we have not showcased animated films so far, here is an attempt on the part of Enlighten to transport them to a brave new world.?

But it is surprising to note that no Hindi animation feature films find a place in the schedule. Comments Ashar, ?Though Indian cinema has come up with a lot of animated films lately, none has been so credible in particular. Yes, there have been a few short films by Indian filmmakers that have been acclaimed in festivals worldwide. We are going to showcase two of them along with our scheduled movies. To keep an element of surprise, we haven‘t mentioned them in our schedule.?
