IFFI 2017: S Durga censored version gets nod for jury screening
After being dropped from Goa fest line-up, censored version of S Durga to screen tomorrow at IFFI
After the controversy that ensued following the Information and Broadcasting Ministry's decision to drop S Durga from the line-up of the International Film Festival of India (IFFI), the censored version of the film will be screened for the jury today. The development was confirmed yesterday by a jury member of the festival's Indian Panorama section. "We have been informed by IFFI that the film will be screened at 6 pm on Monday," the jury member reportedly said.
The screening for the 10-member panel will be held at the festival grounds in Panaji. The jury will apparently decide whether the film will be screened for viewers or not after they watch it. The festival concludes on Tuesday. The Sanal Kumar Sasidharan-directed project was dropped from the screening schedule of the festival's 48th edition. After Sasidharan petitioned the Kerala High Court, the court directed IFFI to screen the film, after a censored version of the movie was screened for the jury.
