Inside the theatre, the kisses and hugs in some of the films seemed to elicit nods of approval and even cheers, but outside, a section of the same delegates seemed to be uncomfortable at even a peck on the cheek.

Kiss of Love, the movement against moral policing and for individual freedom, which has caught the imagination of the State in recent weeks, made its mark at the ongoing 19th International Film Festival of Kerala (IFFK) too, under the banner of ‘Kiss against fascism’ movement.

This being the first time that the event was conducted away from the usual ‘public spaces,’ the violent opposition of the right wing groups was absent.
