THE MAMI FILM CLUB
The city of Mumbai is home to Cinema. Mainstream populist cinema, art house – independent cinema and even the B-grade potboilers co-exist and thrive here. It’s home to film lovers, patrons of art and the common man who seeks a few hours of relief in the darkness of a film theatre. It’s home to storytellers, dreamers. It is about time that the city’s beloved Mumbai Film Festival, expands its horizon and initiates year-round activities that create a much-deserved and much-needed holistic ecosystem for cinema, the film fraternity and the film lovers. We look forward to creating a platform that nurtures, supports, educates and entertains this vast community of movie lovers from all walks of life.
About JIO MAMI with Star
Mumbai – the financial capital of India is also the epicenter of the Indian film industry. The city plays such a major role in production and dissemination of Indian films and television programmes 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 18 years and aims to foster a climate of good cinema. MAMI engages people from all walks of life across the city and country who 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 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.
