What to Expect From the MAMI Film Festival

If you have ever attended a film festival, you already know how much fun they can be. While festivals in CannesVeniceToronto, and Busan get the most attention, India too has several film festivals for people who cannot attend the global ones. India’s most premium film festival is undoubtedly MAMI. Taking place in Mumbai, MAMI is now in its 19th edition, starting from October 12. The festival is expected to run for seven days, offering the best of world cinema to its attendees. If you have attended this film festival before, you already have an idea of what's in store for you. Well then, rush to BookMyShow and register for the Jio MAMI 19th Mumbai Film Festival now! As for the rest of you, here’s what the festival has to offer:

Film Screenings
The primary goal of the film festival is to showcase the latest cutting-edge independent cinema and art house films. Films are screened even before they release in theatres. Last year, A Death in the Gunj was chosen as the opening film, almost seven months before it hit theatres. Even Lipstick under My Burkha was showcased for MAMI attendees before it got embroiled in controversy.

Celebrity Meetups
MAMI is a popular event, attended even by the biggest Bollywood stars. Many grace the Red Carpet for the opening and closing events, or are seen at the Movie Mela, which is a popular feature of MAMI. There are meetups where you can meet the cast of a popular movie, or you can simply catch a glimpse of them at film screenings.

Interviews with Stars 
The Movie Mela includes interviews with celebrities, the cast
and crew of a film, or simply a chat with other celebrated members of the film society. It is always fun to attend these events as you get a chance to speak with your favorite celebs, ask them questions about their movies, and interact with them like never before.

Exposure to World Cinema
MAMI screens various genres of movies, from BollywoodHollywood and also cult international films. Over 200 movies are screened over the course of seven days, in cinemas all over the city, so you don’t have to bother traveling all the way to 'town' to catch a movie. This year, seven venues have been chosen to showcase films for the festival.

Award Functions
At the end, there is also an award function, which celebrates the best in world cinema. These functions are attended by the A-listers of Bollywood, who also hand out awards to the winners. This is also the place where you can catch a glimpse of Aamir Khan, who does not usually attend award functions. But MAMI, like we said before, is a celeb favorite!
