JIFF-2019 is being organized in the fond memory of my loving son Aryan Roj (Millu).
My message to the entire film fraternity through JIFF is that we should try to provide platforms to more countries, increase such competitions and encourage more film makers. Although film making cost has reduced but its distribution is still a complicated and tricky issue. JIFF has taken some steps in this direction and I want other big festivals to take it seriously and carry forward the idea to encourage the art of film making globally.
On this occasion I wish to thank our all partners, team members and well-wishers for their unstinted cooperation and support in this extremely painful time for me and my family.
Now enjoy this 11th edition of JIFF and please keep sending us your valuable suggestions.
A very big THANK YOU, once again.
मेरी जिंदगी में दो ही चीजें थी जिफ और आर्यन – आर्यन और जिफ। ये बहुत मुश्किल दौर है मेरे लिए उसके बिना। आप लोगों का अपार प्यार और समर्थन मुझे और आगे बढ़ने की प्रेरणा देता है। पिछले पाँच साल मेरे लिए इतने कमाल के थे की मुझे किसी भी चीज की फिक्र नहीं थी। लेकिन एक पल ने हमें अकेला कर डाला। आर्यन हमारे बीच नहीं होकर भी हमारे पास है। सच मैं आर्यन कमाल का फिल्म लवर था। पाँच साल में उसने मेरे लिटिल गुरु की उपाधि प्राप्त की है। जिफ 2019 उसी के नाम से है आर्यन जिफ। आप सभी जिफ 2019 का भरपूर आनंद लें। ये आपका जिफ है, आप सभी का।

This is such a great festival and I was really honoured being part of. Everything was setup beautifully and the hospitality was amazing. We were invited to diners with shows. The screenings were in big theatres and the award ceremony was well organised in a beautiful cinema theatre too.
I had a great time attending the festival. I got good opportunity to interact with many awesome film makers around the world. I saw all my favorite award winning documentary films i.e.The Island, Indus Blues and Point of No Return.
One of the most caring and heartfelt festivals I've been to. Lots of special events and chances to meet new and like minded people from all over the world. Overall a very unique and amazing experience.
