No directive yet from government on S Durga: IFFI director

IFFI 2017

S Durga, formerly named Sexy Durga, had also got into trouble with the Central Board of Film Certification over its name, before it screened at the Mumbai Academy of Moving Image (MAMI) Festival. The Open Forum is a platform where filmmakers, actors, jury members, senior government officials, organisers of film festivals from India and overseas exchange their views and ideas in a free and frank manner.

The director also took to Twitter to accuse IFFI and the ministry for acting in an "unconstitutional" manner.

"We are ready. We have given an application today seeking to know when we will be allowed to screen at IFFI along with a copy of the Kerala High Court order".

The panel for the inaugural session of Open Forum titled "New Challenges in Organising Film Festivals" agreed on the requirement for good infrastructure, funds and proper planning to organise film festivals. The ministry is going totally unconstitutional. "Where this country is going to", he wrote. I have sent a mail with the court order. The festival director simply said, "I will let you know whenever I hear of it".
