Jagran Film Festival

Screening | English, Hindi, Marathi | Age 18+


Jagran Film Festival (JFF) is an initiative by the Jagran Prakashan Group towards creating a culture of cinema appreciation and an honest and sincere attempt create a platform that connects great content with audiences across the country.

Last year, with over 16 towns, 400+ screenings, 16 cinema appreciation workshops, the festival directly touched over an audience of over 50,000 people, and the media coverage of Jagran puts the reach of JFF well beyond 50 mn people across India.

In its 8th year, the Festival received great response from filmmakers internationally having received a record number of film entries, over 3,000 as on date. Enthused by the response to this initiative by both the audiences and the filmmakers, the Festival in 2018, plans to travel an even greater distance. The Jagran Film Festival will start from Delhi, travelling through Kanpur, Lucknow, Allahabad, Varanasi, Patna, Dehradun, Ranchi, Jamshedpur, Bhopal, Indore, Gorakhpur, Agra, Ludhiana, Hisar, Meerut, Raipur and finally culminates in Mumbai. This makes it geographically the largest film festival perhaps in the world. The festival screens films across genres from around the globe. A unique feature of JFF is that the cast and crew of a few select films are invited to a discussion with the audience on various elements of the film to wherever the Festival travels. An important aspect of the festival is to generate discussions on the various aspects of Cinema and its impact on society and popular culture.
