He was speaking at a press conference for the 18th International Children's Film Festival, India (ICFFI), starting Nov 14 in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh. The seven-day festival is bringing 200 movies from over 45 countries and over 1.5 lakh child delegates are expected to attend the event.
"If the festival reaches the children throughout the year, it will be great and this is what I have always tried,' Gupte said here.
"I have set a distribution network with the schools to carry cinema to the children in schools so that they can watch and enjoy the movies meant for them. Otherwise they unknowingly watch films with U/A certificate, which are not meant for them," he added.
"I feel it is our responsibility to make good films world over and reach the children," said the filmmaker.
