After the grand success of the 1st Edition, the Film Studio FZ LLC is bringing in the CIFF to UAE for the
 second time. Mr. Deepak Jain, CIFF 2015’s stirring Festival Director said, “CIFF has gained immense popularity since it began its maiden journey last year.

In his exclusive interview with Buzzingtales Mr. Jain reveals that the main purpose of the festival is to nurture & showcase young talent. He further revealed that it is always intriguing to see the amazing way a child’s mind works.

Buzzingtales was particularly touched by the two short films showcased at the press conference, namely Kooky & Freeze. The “Keep Calm & Carry On” documentary bared the power & strength of simple yet profound words during difficult times. The Games Maker is particularly interesting as the movie is about a child who develops an ingenious game & the problem he faces.

“I am…” a movie made by the students of Dubai Center for Special Needs is perhaps one of the most endearing film to be showcased in the festival is “I am…”, because of the special  children involved in the film making. Mr. Deepak Jain mentioned that among the most dramatic changes that had happened this time around at CIFF was the overwhelming response to the call for submission. He considered the participation of Emirati girls studying in Latifa School for Girls, Dubai to be one of the best changes he has witnessed.
