Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival

The Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival is organised by the Mumbai Academy of Moving Image (MAMI) with an aim to present the best of cinema and foster a larger ecosystem for cinematic voices in South Asia. 

Every year, handpicked films from across genres are screened at the festival, where each film is carefully selected based on artistic merit, cultural diversity, and relevance to contemporary issues. Using immaculate programming, the festival showcases creative expressions that re-evaluate cinematic conventions and investigate non-narrative forms, including those that are underrepresented in mainstream cinema. It’s a place for emerging and established cinema talent to showcase their work and network with the best from around the world.

Through a variety of discussions, workshops, and expert panels, the festival encourages critical thinking and dialogue with its audience. In addition to bringing the best of cinema from around the world, the festival also conducts a robust year-round programme that acts as a hub for creators, facilitating the exchange of ideas, providing access to labs for skill development, and exploring business opportunities in filmmaking.
