he Academy would play the role of facilitator in these festivals and it would help selecting films for screening in these galas, a top official said. 

“The festivals are organised by local Malayali organisations and other Indian agencies in these countries. We are playing the role of facilitators in these galas and the Academy has no financial investment in them,” Academy Chairman Rajeev said.

The first such festival would be held in Malaysia from April 18 to 24, he added.

He also said that the seven-day festival in Malaysia is organised jointly by Indian High Commission, All Malaysians Malayali Association (AMMA) and a local television channel there with the support of the Academy,
