Mumbai

-

the financial capital of India is also the epicentre of the Indian film industry

.

The city plays

such a major role in production and dissemination of Indian films and television

programs that it is

widely known by its acronym ‘Bollywood’

.

In 1997, a group of film industry stalwarts headed by late

Hrishikesh Mukherjee founded the

Mumbai Academy of Moving Image

(

MAMI

)

as a not

-

for

-

profit

Trust

.

Their main objective was to organise

an annual International Film Festival which the film

industry and the country could be proud of

.

MAMI has been organising the festival for the last 16 years

and aims to foster a climate of good cinema

.

MAMI engages people from all walks of life across the

city

and country that enjoy and love good cinema

.

It is Mumbai

s only film festival that is entirely created

and run by film professionals and a group of members from corporate India

.

Appreciation of good

cinema, stripped off all the limiting labels of ar

t 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

.

In their Mission Statement in 1997, the MAMI Board of Trustees said,

We feel it is the need of the hour

to disseminate and inculcate good cinema among Indian audiences

.

The only way to achieve this is to

celebrate cinema by hosting an International Film Festival in Mumbai, India

s film and entertainment

capital

.

MAMI

(

Mumbai Academy of Moving Image

)

is

committed to start Mumbai’s first independent

international film festival organized by practicing film makers
