Accordingly the fate of the 23rd edition of the International Film Festival of Kerala (IFFK) is uncertain due to paucity of funds as the state is going through a rebuilding process after being hit by the worst ever floods last month and usually IFFK is held in December every year. Previously Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan gave a directive that on account of the huge requirement of funds for rebuilding the state, all extravagant programs include the IFFK and the State Youth Festival be called off this year.



Further when succumbing to pressure from several quarters, it was decided to go ahead with the Youth Festival on a shoestring budget without any extravagance and then came a request that the IFFK should be held too. Moreover soon after his return from the US, Pinarayi gave the nod for the IFFK, but on the condition that the organizers should utilize their own funds. Hence the State Minister for Films AK Balan told the media that for last year's IFFK, the budget was Rs 6 crore.

Accordingly due to the present circumstances, it has been worked out that to hold the festival in a very modest manner, they would require Rs 3 crore. Of this, the Kerala State Chalachitra Academy (the state owned body that conducts the IFFK) will be able to bring in Rs 2 crore and they should be allowed to take Rs 1 crore from the plan funds.
