An amazing initiative by the Jagran Prakashan Group, the Jagran Film Festival (JFF) is a
sincere attempt to provide a common platform for all cinema lovers to come together under one roof and appreciate the rich culture of cinema. With a huge audience base and gaining
popularity, the festival was nothing less than a grand celebration last year. With almost 16 towns and 400+ screenings, the festival witnessed an overwhelming response from over 50,000 people.
Commencing from Delhi’s Siri Fort Auditorium, this year the festival will travel through Kanpur, Lucknow, Allahabad, Varanasi, Patna, Dehradun, Ranchi, Jamshedpur, Bhopal, Indore, Gorakhpur, Agra, Ludhiana, Hisar, Meerut, Raipur and finally conclude in Mumbai, making it one of the biggest film festivals across the world. From over 3000 entries received nationally and internationally, the best films have been shortlisted for screenings belonging to different genres across the globe.
The most important feature of this festival is to collectively generate discussion on various aspects of Cinema and its impact on the society. The five day long festival – JFF will showcase some of the never seen before movies and over 60 films to choose from. The festival will open with Farhan Akhtar’s latest, The Fakir Of Venice and feature some very well directed full-length films, short films and documentaries across multiple languages and genres.
