Globally acclaimed Iranian filmmaker Pouran Derakhshandeh is slated to kick off the 10th Jagran Film Festival in India, also known as the world’s largest 'Travelling Film Festival'

(TFF), with her latest film “Under the Smokey Roof” to be screened at the inauguration.

Her 2013 “Hush! Girls don’t Scream” will hit the silver screen in New Delhi on July 19.

Most of the Iranian filmmakers and film producers seek to portrait the problems of children and women, who have been overshadowed in the Iranian society.

The 10th edition of the Jagran Film Festival (JFF) will hold a Retrospective of World films and celebrate the life and works of the Iranian film director, producer, screenwriter, and researcher Pouran Derakhshandeh. Filmmaker’s finest award-winning movies like Hush!

Girls Don’t Scream, Under the Smokey Roof, Eternal Children and Wet Dream will be screened at the festival. Her films deal with societal issues like child abuse and women’s rights.

Jagran Film Festival (JFF) is an initiative by the Jagran Prakashan Group towards creating a culture of cinema appreciation and an honest and sincere attempt create a platform that connects great content with audiences across the country.

Last year, with over 18 towns, 400+ screenings, 18 cinema appreciation workshops, the festival directly touched over an audience of over

55,000 people, and the media coverage of Jagran puts the reach of JFF well beyond 50 million people across India.

In its 9th year, the Festival received great response from filmmakers internationally having received a record number of 4500 film entries.

The Jagran Film Festival will start from Delhi, travelling through Kanpur, Lucknow, Allahabad, Varanasi, Patna, Dehradun, Ranchi, Jamshedpur, Bhopal, Indore, Gorakhpur, Agra, Ludhiana, Hisar, Meerut, Raipur and finally culminates in Mumbai.

A unique feature of JFF is that the cast and crew of a few select films are invited to a discussion with the audience on various elements of the film to wherever the Festival travels. An important aspect of the festival is to generate discussions on the various aspects of Cinema and its impact on society and popular culture.

The Jagran Film Festival starts from 18th July in Delhi and will travel through Kanpur, Lucknow, Allahabad, Varanasi, Agra, Meerut, Dehradun, Hisar, Ludhiana, Patna, Ranchi, Jamshedpur, Gorakhpur, Raipur, Indore, and Bhopal, across the 18 cities and finally culminate on 29th September in Mumbai.
