Kannada film Alegalu or Waves, directed by Prithvi Konanur, will screen at the TIFF Kids International Film Festival in Toronto.

The 16th edition of the festival, to be held from April 9 – 21, 2013, will host 117 films from 40 countries.

In the action-adventure Alegalu, Putta and Basu, both nine years old, decide to solve their problems by making offering to the spirit of Panjurli in the nearby island. But soon they realize that they cannot escape their responsibilities easily.

The festival will open with Canadian 3D animated feature, The Legend of Sarila by Nancy Florence Savard and close with German film Famous Five 2 by Mike Marzuk.

The TIFF Kids International Film Festival is an annual festival for children aged three to thirteen and is supported by the Ontario Arts Council and the City of Toronto.
