The Jaffna International Cinema Festival is a non-partisan platform to explore contemporary forms of creative expression in cinema.
Our main aim is to celebrate independent cinema in the peninsula, whilst creating an understanding of other cultures, promote harmony and mutual understanding through cinema.
The festival promotes and encourages young filmmakers by screenings of their debut films and short films.
We invite film enthusiasts, Sri Lankan and International, to visit Jaffna to experience the independent cinema of a new generation.
