The subtitle-reading is expected to deliver a special, friendly and unforgettable experience to children.

The ‘Cinekids’ selections include Boonie Bears: A Mystical Winter, an animation series of Boonie Bear which gained immense popularity in China, Dumbo, a classic Walt Disney animation of a baby elephant, Rainbow, an adventure and coming-of-age drama of two kids that take a journey to meet the Indian actor Shahrukh Khan, Raven the Little Rascal – The Big Race, an adventurous animation of animal characters in the forest, The Incredible Story of the Stone Boy, an animation that features Mexico’s unique diverse colors and exciting songs and Trenk, the Little Knight, a 2D animation with varied colors and diverse characters.
