I would like to share my pleasure with you about a big achievement of JIFF. In the first two editions of JIFF, the awarded films in Best Short film category and Best Cinematography category were also awarded at the National Film Awards. It is a matter of great pride for JIFF that 3 feature films screened/awarded in JIFF 2011 have also been selected for the National Film Awards, announced on 19th of May, 2011. This has surely enhanced the credibility of Jaipur International Film Festival and has increased the inclination of both budding and veteran film makers from all around the world for this annual event.
JIFF is not only one of the fastest growing film festivals in the country but also a festival that brings out young talent and provides a wider national and international platform to them.
The juries of the previous festivals have identified young film makers from around the world and recognized their talent.
It is matter of great pride for JIFF that three feature films screened in JIFF2011 were also selected for the National film Awards, announced 19th of May 2011
