Panchajanyam

An Organisation with socio-cultural commitment

Introduction

The Panchajanyam Film Society was started in 2005 in order to promote good films and a film culture in Chittur and neighbouring areas. The society first started off by screening one-off films and expanded its activities by launching the Panchajanyam International Film Festival in 2008. PIFF is now an annual event and is held in January. You may reach us at panchajanyamfilmsociety@gmail.com
