About Jagran Film Festival: Jagran Film Festival (JFF) is an initiative by the Jagran Group towards creating a culture of cinema appreciation. JFF is an honest and sincere attempt by Jagran to spread this culture, and create a platform that connects great content with audiences across the country. The festival screens films across genres, documentaries and world classics apart from student films and ad films. 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. An important aspect of the festival is to generate a discussion on the various aspects of Cinema and its impact on society and popular culture. A series of Panel Discussions will be held with deliberations by eminent personalities from the film industry. Last year, with over 16 towns, 400+ screenings, 16 cinema appreciation workshops, the festival directly touch over an audience of over 50,000 people. Enthused by the response to this initiative by both the audiences and the filmmakers, the Festival in 2015, plans to travel an even greater distance.
