IFFI 2018 is giving the international audiences a taste of Jharkhand’s vibrant culture, as a part of Special Focus on the state by screening a total of seven films that have an unmistakable Jharkhand flavour in them. Being a recipient of the special mention award for promoting filmmaking in 2016, Jharkhand is in a rightful position to collaborate with 49th IFFI to become the first state in State Focus section. Films such as Begum Jaan, MS Dhoni The Untold Story, Ranchi Diary, A Death in the Gunj, Mor Gao Mor Desh, Ajab Singh ki Gajab Kahani, and Panchlet will be screened as a part of this segment at IFFI 2018.
In connection with this, Jharkhand Day will be celebrated on 24th November 2018 as a part of the festival.
Directorate of Film Festivals, in a statement, said, “India’s rich diversity lies in the landscapes and scenic locales and natural settings that are so different from each other as one traverses from one state to another. Of late, Jharkhand has provided the much needed ‘playground’ for films, lending them its natural beauty that has been so beautifully captured by the talented filmmakers of our country. We are featuring these films at IFFI 2018 for the audiences from across the world – for a glimpse of this beautiful Indian state.”
