The FootPrint Film Festival celebrates the best of films made by children and young adults from India and across the globe. The 2 day festival is an annual event held usually in the month of July at the national capital, New Delhi. It is a hybrid festival with one day being held offline at a pre- decided venue and the next day is staged online. To ensure fair and equal representation of voices of children and young adults, the festival also travels to different cities and towns in the country. It gives an opportunity to those in the hinterland to experience and participate in a festival of this size and magnitude. The festival, from 2023, will now travel to other cities like Chennai & Kolkata.
