JIFF’2013 ends with a glory

5th Edition of Jaipur International Film Festival 2013 has finally came to an end with glory and many appraises. JIFF is a great platform for those who are highly influenced with the society and express it through cinema. It’s real on reel. Since 2009 it is giving an opportunity to the young and budding talents to showcase their capabilities and zest. Many artists from different parts of the world represented their culture, lifestyle and film industry this year. The purpose of this film festival is to promote newer 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.


It was inaugurated by the ‘Dream Girl’ of Bollywood Hema Malini. For the immense contribution to the Indian film industry, Gracious Sharmila Tagore was bestowed with the Lifetime Achievement Award by Hema Malini and Prem Chopra. This year also JIFF was spotted with some of the renowned faces from the industry who well played their role as critics – Jaiprakash Chowksey, Arun Dutt, veteran actors Prem Chopra, Ila Arun, culturist Sundeep Bhutoria and filmmaker Mark Bashit. The presence of Diya Mirza and Priyanka Chopra added more colors to the festival.



spacerThe films were categorized depending upon the genres. Categories were divided to precisely judge the hard work done by the participants. The films talked about love, brotherhood and composite culture, the sensitivity, lack political, social, communal, familial and emotional tolerance. Although Indian cinema is touching greater heights and it had also become multilingual but on the other side it has been losing the touch of Indians.

Though the film festivals have became 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 & movies goers with the world, especially the serious filmmaker & their associates so as to bring about greater understanding of the art of film making.
