Tigmanshu Dhulia has joined the initiative by SMILE foundation to provide meaningful cinema to children in his position as advisory member for SIFFCY. Tigmanshu believes the heavy pricing of ticket rates makes it impossible for children to watch good quality cinema made for them.

He says, “It's pretty sad that the films which are made for children today are pretty expensive to watch for the target audience itself; the whole box office lobby is behind it. Children who want to see meaningful films are not able to, because of the over priced tickets and the visual effect market has taken over the meaningful cinema for children category films.

Elaborating on the economic structure of an average Indian, the national award winning filmmaker (PAAN SINGH TOMAR) says, “In a country where 90% of population earns below 10,000 would not spend 250-300 rs for watching a film, ultimately it's the parents who take their children for films. SMILE foundation has taken an initiative with Smile International Film Festival for Children and Youth (SIFFCY) which will premiere over 50 independent feature length films, short films and documentaries for the children. They are selecting films with a social message.

When it comes to films its always related to the economics, the whole circle is only completed when you see a box office potential, just showcasing film's at film festivals would only get praises but it won't get a theatrical release in the country. Films would only get a awards, but won't get a rewards,” he added.
