24th IFFK 2019- Inaugurated by Pinarayi Vijayan

“India’s cultural diversity is at stake”: Pinarayi Vijayan
Terming filmmaking and film festivals as forms of resistance against a global rise in fascist and oppressive ideologies,  Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan inaugurated the 24th International Film Festival of Kerala at Nishagandhi Auditorium. He spoke at length about the diversity of people and places in India and how much variety was threatened by ideas of “One Language, One State”. He asserted that filmmaking has a history of being a weapon against authoritarian regimes that stifled diversity and freedom of expression. It was a medium capable of moving masses. Vijayan praised the efforts of filmmakers from Third-World countries who had used their art to raise their voice against corrupt and repressive governments. He hoped that the film festival would provide a stage for such efforts to be recognized on an international level. Where art is repressed, freedom cannot flourish, he said. Terming the art of cinema as a tool to develop political consciousness in the general public, The C.M has also pointed out that films could force people to empathize with one another’s problems and forge a sense of unity.
