Kidscreen Summit

Kidscreen Summit

We had the pleasure of attending the Kidscreen Summit 2023 in Miami.

Being one of the largest global animation markets, the event sure was very knowledgeable where we met a lot of industry leaders who are driving trends and change. The takeaway is to create content that is adapting to include teaching and entertaining parents as well as modeling parent/children interactions and conversations. We are looking forward to more such industry talks and learnings at the upcoming events.

Also super proud and elated for Prabhakar Sambandan and a few of our Mighty Saffronites for their past contribution to the award winning shows in the Kidscreen Summit 2023.

The Joy of Giving Back

On the joyous occasion of National Girl Child Day, we had the privilege to collaborate with the Tech Mahindra Foundation and visit the CSI School for the Deaf.

Saffronic team hosted two awareness skits on the importance of girl children and also engaged them with our art. Our artists drew portraits of these young children, danced and entertained them. Wonderful big smiles from these kids truly blessed our hearts. Looking forward to many such events.
