Jagran Film Festival receives 2400 entries in its 7th edition

Within a month of announcing its call for entries, the 7th edition of Jagran Film Festival has received over 2,400 film entries across categories from 104 countries. The Festival opened its call on 12 April 2016.

Speaking about the response, Festival’s Strategic Consultant, said, “We reached out to vast spectrum of film makers across the globe this year and the results are in front of us. However, the problem is to complete pre selection on a war footing and within the deadline. Each day even now, 30-40 films are pouring in.”

The Festival has been inviting film entries each year from film makers across the globe in categories like World Panorama, Short is Sweet ( a competitive section for International Shorts),  Indian Showcase (Competitive section for Indian features) and Cinema of the Sellers (Competitive section for advertising films). The other sections of the Festival are Country Focus, Retrospectives, Homages, Tributes and the Knowledge Series.

Basant Rathore, Senior V P-Brand and Strategy, Jagran Prakashan said, “It’s clear we are emerging as a credible platform in the country and the world is recognizing it. We never received these many entries in the last six years, combined. It is a clear indication of the ‘connect’, credibility and popularity that the Festival commands today.”

 The Festival begins on July 1, 2016 in New Delhi’s Siri Fort Auditorium and ends on July 5, to move on to 14 other cities before reaching Mumbai on 26 September, 2016.
