“The ICFF has touched the lives of more than 30,000 students who are an integral part of the Asian Academy of Film and Television and the Asian Education Group over the past thirty years,” stated Marwah. “We not only provide education and training but also mentor these students on a personal level, molding them into well-rounded individuals.”
Marwah Studios has actively collaborated with various children’s societies, focusing on underprivileged and special-needs children who lack access to quality education and resources. “Under the name of Apna School, we have established 12 schools in Noida’s slums, providing systematic education to over 800 students,” Marwah added.

Furthermore, the ICFF visits schools and colleges, showcasing motivational films to instill valuable life lessons. Films are also taken to slums and villages, using the power of cinema to educate individuals about the basics of life. MSTV and Radio Noida of Marwah Studios continuously broadcast programs on Children.
To entertain, educate, and inform children on various life issues, the ICFF hosts the annual Children’s Film Festival during the Global Film Festival Noida, a cherished event that has been running for sixteen years.
