The International Kids Film Festival, conceived by LXL Ideas, is the world's largest children's film festival and aims to bring inspiring, meaningful and globally diverse cinema to over 2 million school students across Asia and Africa. The first edition of IKFF was conducted in India in November 2017, where close to 1 million students across 500 schools in 75 cities participated. This year IKFF is growing bigger and better!

IKFF will allow kids to experience the magic of cinema right in their own school! Schools will be able to host IKFF on their own campus, for their students, parents and teachers by simply unboxing this Festival In A Box.
