Thiruvananthapuram, Dec 14 (UNI)- The open forum at the 28th IFFK has witnessed social media reviews garnering the majority vote.

While acknowledging the inevitable role of social media in film reviewing, participant panelists emphasized that the reviews often focus primarily on major films.

Pierre Simon Gutman, IFFK jury member, stressed the need to review good films on OTT platforms that lack widespread reach. Melis Behlil, another jury member, highlighted the disappearance of small films amid the criticism of big productions.

N Vidyashankar pointed out that social media not only hosts reviews but also facilitates discussions where diverse opinions can be expressed.

G P Ramachandran assessed that the common trend now is an attitude of turning back towards the movie reviewing field. Aswathi Gopalakrishnan asserted that film criticism is inseparable from social media, which plays a crucial role. VK Joseph, Meenakshi Dutta, and Sreedevi P Aravind also actively participated in the discussion held on Wednesday.
