The International Film Festival of Kerala (IFFK; Malayalam: അന്തർദേശീയ ചലച്ചിത്രോത്സവം കേരളം, Anthardeshiya chalachitrolsavam keralam) is a film festival held annually in Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum), the capital city of Kerala, India. This film festival was started in 1996 and is hosted by the Kerala State Chalachitra Academy on behalf of Department of Cultural Affairs, Government of Kerala. The festival is held in November/December every year and is acknowledged as one of the leading such events in India. Several national and international films have their premiers at the IFFK each year. In 2005, 14 films, including the Oscar-nominated Water, directed by Deepa Mehta, were screened for the first time in India at the IFFK, and this is attributed to the well-informed, serious-minded audience that the festival boasts of. Competition section is limited to 14 selected films produced in Asia, Africa or Latin America. The festival also has a section devoted to Malayalam cinema. On the lines of the IFFK, the Chalachitra Academy also organises the International Documentary and Short Film Festival of Kerala. - Wiki
