Mr. Satish Kapoor of ‘Brotherhood’ said “Cinema is a powerful means of communication to create conversations on the journey and contribution of specially abled people. ‘We Care’ Film Festival is our ongoing endeavor to address the wrong imagery surrounding them. They can learn to lead a normal life if they have effective access to services like early identification, intervention, education, vocational training and employment opportunities.”

Photography, Storytelling and Painting competitions on the theme of disability are also being organized that will see entries from schools and colleges across India.

According to Prof. Sajal Mukherjee, Director, Apeejay Institute of Mass Communication, “AIMC is proud to be associated with this festival. Since its inception at AIMC, we have been seeing increasingly widespread participation from students of various schools and Universities across India.’’
