Best Film
Phool Apni Khushbu Khud Nahi Leta
by Rahul Rai

In the small village of Pipliya, an ordinary man with an ordinary dream is achieving extraordinary feats. Dashrath Kanade is a Government Primary School who has resolved to transform the education system by teaching his students about the values of selfless service. Dashrath’s enthusiasm, contagious energy, and relentless focus on every one of his students earned him a special position at his school. The film celebrates the indefatigable spirit of a teacher and hopes to inspire others to follow in Dasrath’s footsteps.


2nd Best Film
Cup of Tea
by Jitendra Rai

‘Education for All’ is a noble pursuit, albeit a difficult one. The realities of our time reflect in our inability to reach out to the remotest villages. Despite innovations in technology, countless homes remain isolated from the power of learning. And while the struggle for technological accessibility continues, sometimes all it takes is one person and a cup of tea to illuminate the lives of many.

3rd Best Film
Une Petite Différence
by Chloé Dumoulin

Lost in her own version of a "secret garden", Elsa is suddenly disturbed by the other children in the playground. In an effort to valiantly protect her creation, Elsa puts up a fight against the gang of bullies but finds herself being sent to the headteacher’s office. However, the tensed confrontation between the Headteacher and the quarrelsome child takes an unexpected turn.

4th Best Film
Truancy the Missing Children
by Debjeet Kundu

Bunking classes is a jovial memory we often associate with school life. But Truancy is a much more pressing issue with grave implications. Student retention in government schools is dismal, making truancy one of the biggest challenges faced by education system. More often than not, truancy results in child labour, juvenile crime, early marriage, substance abuse. The film takes a brief, albeit informed look at the case of the ‘missing children’.

5th Best Film
Ek Idiot
by Rudra Ranjan Sejpada

A teacher is the foremost bearer of the beacon of education. It is the teacher who moulds the young minds of the children, constantly guiding them to blossom into the best version of themselves. But sometimes, even a teacher turns into a learner, and their guide can be an unseemly ‘idiot’.
