Based on recent national controversies and lined up for screening at the upcoming International Documentary and Short Film Festival of Kerala, The union Ministry of Information and Broadcasting has denied censor exemption to three documentaries. The festival, which begins on June 16, is organised by the Kerala State Chalachithra Academy, a body under the state government’s Department of Cultural Affairs. Films screened at film festivals do not require a certificate from the Censor Board, but they must have a censor exemption certificate from the Ministry. Without censor exemption, no documentary or feature film can be screened at a festival.
