“I feel that while the festival in Goa has other interests such as promoting tourism, the IFFK is all about cinema. The Chalachithra Academy has done an exceptional job keeping it that way,” he said.

Making international films accessible to Malayali audiences, he said, has nurtured budding interest in world cinema.

“This has created a core audience, especially among the young, who are keen to explore new landscapes and contours in global cinema.”

“Movies with unfamiliar technical, narrative and social aspects have definitely influenced the filmmaker in me. But, at the IFFK, I’m more a film student and aficionado than filmmaker,” he said

IFFK 2015 is being held here from December 4-11.
