Mumbai Film Festival.

About

Mumbai Film Festival is organized by theMumbaiAcademyof the Moving Image (MAMI). In 1997, a group of film industry stalwarts founded the Mumbai Academy of Moving Image as a not for profit Trust. The main intention was to organize an annual International Film Festival of which the film industry and the country can be proud of.

MAMI aims to foster a climate of good cinema. Appreciation of good cinema, stripped off all the limiting labels of art and commercial, can only come about through exposure to the best of films the world has to offer. The festival is the first step in that direction.

The Official Programme comprises:

  • International Competition for the First Feature Films of Directors
  • World Cinema
  • India Gold
  • Dimensions Mumbai
  • The India Story
  • Retrospectives / Homages

Applicants may choose to which section(s) they wish to offer their film.  The film / filmmaker must qualify as per the section(s) to which they are applying for.
