The three-day festival, which would witness the who’s who of Bollywood including actors Parineeti Chopra, Siddharth Malhotra, Boman Irani and director Nikkhil Advani in attendance, also has a special category of ‘Retrospective Film’ in its schedule, a press release read.

For this edition, according to the organisers, the retrospective film category will include box-office hits of actor Anil Kapoor like “Ram Lakhan” and “Biwi No 1”.

“We are excited to bring the festival to Uttar Pradesh. We hope to be able to provide a global platform to the many creative talents in the state.

“I thank the many filmmakers who registered and are participating in the festival. We have put together a treat for film lovers and hope they enjoy the many splendid films during the festival,” Basant Rathore, senior vice-president, Jagran Prakashan, said.

“Tumbbad”, directed by Rahi Anil Barve and Adesh Prasad, will be screened as the inaugural film in Lucknow, while “Kya Hoga”, directed by Gyanendra Dubey — made by a producer from Kanpur and shot in Kanpur — will have its world premiere at the Kanpur JFF.

Beside, both the cities will also screen Argentinian films along with the new OTT release “Kota Factory” by TVF.
