International Film Festival of Kerala

International Film Festival of Kerala

Kerala, a tropical paradise, is recommended by the National Geographic Magazine as one of the 50 ‘must-see’ destinations of the world. Marketed as God’s own country Kerala (kera+layam) which literally translates as abode of the coconuts and as legend goes it is the land that was reclaimed from the Sea.

From mountains to the sea, from rock to sand, lush greens to bright reds, spicy curries to sweet payasams, calm rural spaces to bustly urban centres kerala has as much variety in colour, texture and experiences, that takes more than lifetime to live and absorb completely.
Kerala boasts of one of the most cine-literate and discerning audiences in the world. Cinema and politics are two abiding passions of the people of Kerala. Bizarre experiments in the medium, with few takers elsewhere, find vociferous votaries here.

The International Film Festival of Kerala is a yearly event organised by the Kerala State Chalachitra Academy on behalf of the Department of Cultural Affairs, Government of Kerala. The festival is recognized by the FIAPF thus making it part of a prestigious circle of specialized festivals. The 15th edition of IFFK will be held at Thiruvananthapuram (formerly known as Trivandrum), the capital city of Kerala in the South of India from 10th - 17th December 2010.

IFFK boast’s of an exclusive and extremely popular Competition section restricted to films produced or co produced in ASIA, AFRICA & LATIN AMERICA within the last year of the festival cycle. The usual sections include world cinema, documentaries (in film formats), short fiction (in film formats), retrospectives, homage’s and tributes.

Over the years, the festival has attracted an ever increasing number of entries and our distinguished juries have a tough choice in deciding on the prizes and there is the prospect of winning attractive cash awards.
