THE MERCHANT: FILM MARKET

From JIFF-2011 onwards, ‘The Merchant’ was introduced to the film and art world. In JIFF-2012 & 19, only the selective filmmakers could participate in ‘The Merchant’ but from JIFF-2020 we are fully prepared to open the film market for everyone.

JIFF is fully prepared to make ‘The Merchant’ one of the finest film markets of the world cinema for the entire world. We are here to develop a dais on which the film fraternity can access the worldwide dialogue on research, production, co-production and distribution. In order to render the world film industry a new distinctive identity and bring the producers, exhibitors and the skilled and creative personalities right under one roof.

India is one of the prominent nations of the world and the filmmakers across the globe are keeping an eye on it. Some of the finest locations for shooting are available in the city of Jaipur & Rajasthan. Make your way to Jaipur, India.

Now you can submit infinite films in 'The Merchant'.

The best thing about ‘The Merchant’ (film market) is that most of the distributors, producers and exhibitors from the state of Rajasthan will participate in it. Besides, there will be some selective film professionals from other parts of India and all over the world.

Note: Rajasthan with an area of 342239 sq km is the largest state in India. The population of the state is more than 6.86 crore (68.6 million) and the place itself is highly admirable for its remarkable shooting locations (modern, historical and natural) across the globe.

It is an undeniable fact that youth comprises of the largest audience segment and India is a country with an extremely huge youth population. Out of the total population of country, today, over 35% of our population is below the age of 20. By 2020, it is expected that 325 million people in India will reach working age, which will be the largest in the world.
