Description:
The Mumbai Academy of the Moving Image (MAMI) is a public trust that organizes annual International Film Festival in Mumbai known as the Mumbai Film Festival (MFF). The festival completed ten years in the year 2008.

Filmmaker Shyam Benegal is the chairman of the trust.

Beginnings

In 1997, a group of film industry stalwarts headed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee 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. It holds that 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 designed to be the first step in that direction.

MAMI Board of Trustees clarified in their Mission Statement in 1997: "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 (birth place of Indian Cinema), India’s film and entertainment capital. Mumbai Academy of Moving Image is committed to start Mumbai’s first independent international film festival organized by practicing film makers."

Notable participants

MAMI is chaired by Indian filmmaker Shyam Benegal.
