IFFK witnessed a protest by Kodungallur Film Society, Malayalam Aikya Vedi, and MSone, for providing Malayalam subtitles for foreign language movies. According to them, all major film festivals around the world provide sub titles in native languages.
The protesters gathered before Kairali theatre complex with placards and raising slogans for bringing Malayalam film subtitles. The protest was the follow-up of the many protests regarding subtitles, before the start of the festival.

They said that, Malayalam subtitles would make films in any language more enjoyable to even those who are not good in English. www.malayalamsubtitles.org, started by the group already has subtitles for more than 100 films. They have painstakingly downloaded the English subtitles and translated it line by line.
