Serbia is the country on focus for 27th IFFK

The eight-day fest conducts the screening of films in various categories


The 27th edition of the International Film Festival of Kerala (IFFK) is scheduled to be held from December 9 to 16. And this time, the country in focus will be Serbia. 

Six Serbian films are slated to be screened in this category including Milos Pusic's Working Class Heroes which premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival this year.

Along with that, Oscar-nominated director Stefan Arsenijevic's vividly crafted and performed drama, Far As I Can Walk, a contemporary refugee story, will also be screened. This film won the top prize at Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, in 2021. The other films include Father, Oasis, Cross in the Dessert, and The beheading of St. John the Baptist.

Hosted by the Kerala State Chalachitra Academy on behalf of the Department of Cultural Affairs, Government of Kerala, IFFK has become a delight for film enthusiasts over the years.

The eight-day fest conducts the screening of films in the categories of International Competition, Malayalam Cinema Today, Indian Cinema Now, World Cinema, Country Focus, Retrospectives of eminent filmmakers, Contemporary Focus, Homages and various curated packages. There are also platforms like Open Forum, and workshops that are also organised for the delegates to interact with film fraternities from all over the world. One of the main attractions of IFFK is the yearly Aravindan Memorial Lecture.
