Jaipur international Film Festival
Jaipur International Film Festival (JIFF) is an annual film festival organized in Jaipur, the capital city of the State of Rajasthan, India. It is claimed to be the world’s fastest growing film festival. Its debut in 2009 showcased 59 films from 8 countries, and after 4 years the number went up to 217 films from 90 countries for all genres from short, documentary, animation to feature films, which attracted 20,000 visitors.
The purpose of this film festival is to promote new movie makers, exchange of knowledge, information, ideas & culture between India & other nations in context of their social and cultural ethos. JIFF also promotes friendship and co-operation among people of the world through the medium of films & documentaries.
Though the film festivals have become a regular affair in most countries yet most of them cater only to selected audience as well as entertain the commercially successful film makers and related personalities. However, JIFF intends to organize a festival that connects the film fans & movie goers with the world, especially the serious filmmakers & their associates so as to bring about greater understanding of the art of film making.
