With the kind of outrage that the Indian film land has been experiencing off late, it is very obvious that they are going to play a safe game from now on. The issue of casting Pakistani artists in Indian movies or screening movies starring Pakistani artists has received mixed reviews. Nonetheless, a film festival as big as the JIO MAMI Mumbai Film festival, is not about to take any risks. It is only due to this that the organizers have decided not to showcase Jago Hua Savera- a Pakistani film that was earlier scheduled to be screened.
Steered in association with Star, the JIO MAMI Mumbai Film festival in one of India’s premier film festival. Now in its eighteenth year, the festival has been famed for screening some gripping short films. It not only shows the latest cutting-edge cinema but also films from Bollywood, Hollywood and other cult international movies.
The festival is run by the Mumbai Academy of Moving Image popularly known as MAMI. Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival is a space where Shah Rukh Khan, Quentin Tarantino, Zhang Yimou and Rajnikanth would all feel equally at home. It is a place where the cinema lovers revel in the sheer pleasure of cinema and joy it gives them. The goal is not only to nurture the passion for movies but ignite the same too. With a lot of yet-unreleased flicks scheduled to be screened for the very first time, this fest is your best bet to catch them before the world does!
Scheduled to be held from October 20th to October 27th, if you do plan to attend the fest, you can not only avail exciting discounts on your stay (with the help of their partners) but also, being valued delegates of the festival, avail special offers at the best eateries in the city.
