He was the cameraman for the movie Boghz which was filmed in Turkey and directed by Reza Darmishian. Touraj Aslani, the movie's cinematographer, explains that he chose Javad Jalali because of his knowledge and understanding of colors, motions and photography. He added that the movie was filmed using two cameras, either narrating its own look and jump cuts of the movie. This form of filming is a new experience in Iranian cinema.[6] He was also nominated for an award at the Fajr Film Festival for the movie and the behind-the-scenes photography of Aal and Endless Dreams.[7] He was recognized by the jury of the 29th Fajr International Film Festival for Endless Dreams.[8]

In this exhibition, photographs of the movie and the behind the scene of Farewell Baghdad were shown in photo art format. It was a combination of photographs and the soundtrack of the movie. The photographs alongside the soundtrack were a conceptual event for the audience.[10]
