Today morning every one heard the happy news that Ennu Ninte Moideen and Pathemari has been selected in to the Malayalam film section of International Film Festival of Kerala (IFFK 2015) which will occur at Trivandrum as every year. It has been a great honor for a film to participate in the most prestigious film festival that happens in India and the value given to the awards given in this film festival is too high. Trivandrum and Panaji are the places where two of the biggest film festivals in India takes place every year. But right after the good news of the selection of Ennu Ninte Moideen and Pathemari, the news came in that Ennu Ninte Moideen has been withdrawn from its participation in the International film festival and it is said by director Vimal himself to an interview given to Manorama Online.
RS Vimal said that he is not at all interested in showing the film in the category of Malayalam cinema today. At first they said that they want the film in order to show in the competition section. At that time itself the director told them that they interested only in showing the film in the competition section of the film festival and if it is not the case then they will not give their film to show in the film festival in any other section.
But the Chalachithra Academy took decision of their own to show it in the section of Malayalam cinema today and that is not at all acceptable to the team behind the film. RS Vimal also said that it is ridiculous that the directors who gives their films to show in the IFFK only get to know about the different sections in the film festival through newspapers and it is not at all right from the part of Chalachithra Academy.
RS Vimal said that he still don’t know why they did not chose the film in the competitive section. He believes that Ennu Ninte Moideen has all the quality to be take part in the competition in IFFK. Vimal also alleged that he get to know about the decision of the academy to include the film only in the Malayalam film section through newspapers and not personally informed to him.
