Ayon sa kanilang website, ni-launch ang JIPP noong January 2009. Nagaganap ito tuwing last week of January or first week ng February sa Jaipur, India.
“The purpose of this film festival is to promote new movie makers, exchange of knowledge, information, ideas & culture between India & other nations in context of their social and cultural ethos.
“JIFF also promotes friendship and co-operation among people of the world through the medium of films & documentaries.
“Though the film festivals have became a regular affair in most countries yet most of them cater only to selected audience as well as entertain the commercially successful film makers and related personalities.
“However, JIFF intends to organize a festival that connects the film fans & movie goers with the world, especially the serious filmmakers & their associates so as to bring about greater understanding of the art of filmmaking.”
