With five days left for the 17th edition of the International Film Festival of Kerala, the Festival Directorate has distributed a good majority of delegate passes. This year, 7,117 passes have been issued, of which 1,741 are for students.

 ‘’As many as 3,200 delegates are from the capital and the rest hail from various districts, with a large turnout from northern districts,’’ said Chalachitra Academy secretary K Manojkumar.

 ‘’The current edition has several last-minute formalities owing to the switch over to digital projection,’’ said Manojkumar.

 ‘’We have sent the server IP numbers of the theatres to the distributors. The KDMR number essential for projection will be received only 48 hours prior to the exhibition. Moreover, it will be valid only for two days,’’ he said.

 The festival authorities have selected volunteers for the programme, with 30 to be deployed for desk relations, 25 for technology support, 45 for verifying entrance pass and 27 for compering functions. ‘’The comperes, all selected from city colleges, are being given a three-day training,’’ said Manojkumar.

The festival office at Kairali theatre complex will have an exhibition-cum-display of Chalachitra Academy publications.

The canteen for delegates at the Kairali theatre complex will be run by the Kudumbashree. ‘’Ethnic dishes will be served at the outlet at nominal rates. The menu comprises ‘vada’, ‘kozhukatta’, ‘meals’ etc,’’ said Manojkumar.
