Jimmy Shergill felicitated with special award at an International Film Festival
The week long Smile International Film Festival conducted its award ceremony at Sirifort Auditorium in the presence of Bollywood actor Jimmy Shergill, Suman Ganguly, director of 'Blue Mountain' and Amitabha Singh, director of 'Shortcut Safari'.

While the internationally acclaimed film 'Celestial Camel' won the best direction award, the best feature film was bagged by 'Birds of Passage'.

Jimmy Shergill was felicitated with a special award by Jitendre Mishra, festival director SIFFCY.

Speaking on the occasion, Jimmy said, "I am really glad that through SIFFCY, different worlds of children got an opportunity to interact with each other. It's such a good platform to recognize meaningful cinema from around the world."

The festival promoted 'Swatch Bharat Campaign' among privileged and underprivileged children apart from regular screening of films. The Centre of attraction was the sand art by renowned sand artist Sudam Pradhan who made a sand sculpture of 8 ft tall Santa holding a broom that gave message to the children to keep our city clean.

From feature films to short films, Animation to Students' films, hundreds of children from schools and NGO's were part of it. SIFFCY conducted workshops on film making too where children participated with great enthusiasm.
