The 23rd International Film Festival of Kerala (IFFK) 2018 will begin today (December 7) at Thiruvananthapuram.
IFFK 2018 will go on from December 7 to 13, where 190 films from 65 countries will be shown.
Filmmaker Asghar Farhadi’s Everybody Knows, starring Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz, is the opening film.
Lijo Jose Pellissery’s Ee. Ma. Yau and Zakariya’s Sudani from Nigeria are the Malayalam films in the competition section.
IFFK 2018 is being held at a limited budget this year, as Kerala is recovering from the devastating floods which affected the state badly this year. The delegate fees has been enhanced to INR 2000. The film print format has given way to digital, as not a single movie will be screened in film format.
