The international recognition for JIFF is increasing day by day and the jump in the number of film makers displaying their faith in the Festival has once again proved this. While a total of 1317 films from 90 countries were submitted last year, this year the number of submitted films is 1523. 

A total of 89 films have been selected in the first list of JIFF-2014. This includes 18 feature films, 45 short fiction films, 13 documentaries and 13 animation films. In this list 41 films are from India and the rest are from various countries. The list of selected films is attached herewith.

The second and third list of remaining films which would include films from the home state, ie Rajasthan also is likely to be released by the end of December this year.

The members of selection committee of JIFF 2014 includes Niranjan Thade, Aarti Srivastava, Manish Vataslya experts from Mumbai and Prasoon Sinha, Dr. Durgaprasad Agrawal, Gajendra Shrotriya, Gaurav Panjwani, Deepak Gera, Vivek Sharma, Dr. Vibhuti Pandya, Narendra Arora, Parul Mathur and Dr. Dushyant experts from Jaipur. After three months of careful viewing of these films they have made this selection. One of the members of the selection committee, Dr. Durgaprasad Agrawal says that viewing these films was a great pleasure. Filmmakers around the world are boldly experimenting with the medium and are coming with the work which enriches and refines the sensibilities of the viewer. Jaipur is fortunate enough in having such a wonderful festival. Dr Agrawal urged the people of Jaipur to view as many films as possible during the festival.

Prasoon Sinha:  What I personally found that this year the quality of the Films as submitted in the JIFF were much better than the previous year. However, there were few Films, which were not at all matched with standard of selection as per the JIFF, 2014.

I, herewith, declare that all Committee members along with me have thoroughly watched every Film & took our decisions related to the selection of those Films for under different categories are purely based on the merit of the Films.

 

All decisions finally have been taken by me & these are only based on the quality of contents, treatment of the subject & presentation on the screen by the makers. This also to mention here that neither me or members of the Film Previewing & Selection committee have ever favoured anyone in the entire proceedings of the selection of Films for the JIFF,2014. 

 

 

Gajendra Shrotriya: As a member of JIFF2014 preview committee I got to watch the best of cinema from all parts of the world which as a film maker myself is nothing short of a privilege. The whole experience has been enlightening and helped me develop a better perspective to understand world cinema. 

After completion of interesting as well as exciting journey of 5 years, this is the time for serious re-thinking for JIFF family. After attaining so much insuch a short time, they have a bigger task of making this festival more meaningful. And keeping this thing in mind JIFF people have designed this year’s festival a bit differently and even have charted out some very special programs and features for film makers and film lovers.

From this year onwards, JIFF would be organized in five segments, namely JIFF, Film Market, Co-production, Regional Cinema, Special session and workshops, seminars and publications.

JIFF has scaled new heights and created national and international records, of course with the unstinted cooperation of global film fraternity. And for their cooperation and support, JIFF has only one word: THANK YOU.

The next target for JIFF is procurement of the revenue to the tune of 2 crores and attaining the target of one lakh registrations.

JIFF 2014 would be organized on 1-5 February, 2014. The registration for participation in JIFF is open. The registration can be done online as well as through downloaded forms from its website, www.jiffindia.org
