This decision will destroy the brand 'Thiruvananthapuram', government should reconsider its decision: KS Sabarinathan

iffk

KS Sabrinathan MLA took to social media to protest against the state government's decision to hold the 25th Kerala International Film Festival in four districts. Sabrinathan says in his social media post that all the film festivals around the world are known by the names of the cities where they are held and the nature of the festivals is based on these cities. He also said that the decision of the state government will destroy the brand 'Thiruvananthapuram' which we have developed in the international film industry over the last 25 years.


Sabarinathan's post:

'The most famous film festivals in the world are the Berlin Film Festival, the Venice International Film Festival and the Cannes Film Festival. The identity of these festivals is these three cities. These cities are known to millions of film lovers through fairs.

Through IFFK launched in 1996, Thiruvananthapuram has a prominent place on the world cinema map. The best theaters and excellent infrastructure in Thiruvananthapuram are the main foundation of IFFK's success.


The city is an emotion for movie lovers who visit Thiruvananthapuram in the month of December. Similar to this is the personal connection with Kochi for those who come to Kochi Biennale.

It is unfortunate that the government has decided not to hold the IFFK in full in Thiruvananthapuram from this year but in part in four districts instead. This decision will destroy the brand 'Thiruvananthapuram' that we have developed in the international film industry for over 25 years. Things will move forward in a way that makes IFFK irrelevant in the future.

I urge the government to reconsider its decision. "
