Our most essential step is to have a Global Film Library. Art and Culture need continuous efforts for conservation and preservation. Film is an art form that integrates several art forms. Therefore, it needs bigger efforts for conservation and preservation. We are moving on the path of promoting and executing these ideas.
The basic aim of the Library is to bring the world cinemas under one roof and ensure promotion, preservation and conservation of films of all countries and of all genres – all kinds of cinema- and work as a catalyst for cultural exchange between different continents.
We commit that money received from all the sources would be spent only on Library activities and not on any other activity. The statement of income and expenditure would be provided on demand to every contributor of the Library. Also details will be available on website.
The first film submitted to the unique Library is ‘THE PLACE IS NOW’, produced by Igor Mamlenkov from Russia and jointly directed by Garik Wiskin from Russia and Wayne Scott from England.
THE BASIC AIM OF THE LIBRARY IS TO BRING THE WORLD CINEMAS UNDER ONE ROOF and ensure promotion, preservation and conservation of films of all countries and of all genres - all kinds of cinema- and work as a catalyst for cultural exchange between different continents.

The General Film Library would be located in Jaipur City. The beginning is being made from this year from JIFF office. (You may visit the JIFF or Library website for the progress). It would be expanded later. A part of this Library would be attached to the World’s Largest Film Library to be located in Jaipur Rural.
The World’s Largest Film Library would be located in a sprawling around 4 Hectare of land. The infrastructure would include office complex, theaters, guest house, cafeteria, post-production studio and helipad.
The Online Film Library would have its own server on which selected films would be available online. Such films would available for online viewing – both on the free and the paid basis.
The online viewing facility would be available by 2018 or 2019.
This part of the Library (World’s Most Secure Section) would be so designed that the films preserved here would remain secure in any kind of natural or human catastrophe including floods, fire, earthquakes and wars etc. in particular region.
The World Cinema and Cultural Studies Centre and the Film Preservation and the Restoration Centre would become operational in 2022.
Meanwhile the Cultural Study Centre would launch a research project of audio-video documentation of Rajasthani culture.
For this project cooperation of the Govt. would be sought.
A new concept for service to film makers: The Library will provide a unique service. Any producer, director or a production house can use this service. If anyone desires so the Library on his/her behalf will submit copy of his/her film to any film festival or send the copy to any destination of his/her choice. The Library would send the copy of the desired film using both the on-line and off-line medium, whichever is available. In this way the Library would be a major support tool for every film maker or production house.
The films would be preserved and protected in any eventuality of natural disasters like fire and earthquake. The films would remain protected and preserved in the man-made disasters too like wars and terrorist attacks in particular region.
