The successful organization of ‘The Merchant’ was sufficient enough to render a new energy to all the filmmakers and the members of organizing committee. During the 5 days of the festival, 2 workshops and 3 seminars were also conducted. These workshops and seminars helped an immense numbers of participants with valuable lessons and knowledge.
Next year, the festival will be organized on a very grand scale as JIFF will celebrate the 100 successful years of Indian cinema.
