What Is It?

The Jagran Film Festival is a traveling film festival which screens films across different genres from all around the globe. It started its journey in Delhi in July and is reaching Mumbai in a week’s time to show over 200 brilliant movies.

Who Is It For?

This is for everyone who loves films {both Indian and international}, and would love to be immersed in an environment which is all about watching, appreciating and discussing movies. It is also for those who may not always call themselves a ‘movie-buff’ but are interested in seeing more, knowing more and running into celebrities.
