About Jio MAMI
The Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival with Star is an inclusive movie feast. It showcases the latest cutting-edge, independent cinema — art house fare alongside genre movies from Bollywood and Hollywood and cult international movies. It offers the best of world cinema to the people of Mumbai and it offers the best of Indian cinema to the world. The festival is run by the Mumbai Academy of Moving Image popularly known as MAMI. Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival With Star is a space where Aamir Khan, Quentin Tarantino, Zhang Yimou and Rajinikanth would all feel equally at home. This is a space where movie lovers revel in the sheer pleasure of cinema, the joy it gives us and how much it enhances our lives. The goal is to nurture and ignite a passion for movies.
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 16 years and aims to foster a climate of good cinema. MAMI engages people from all walks of life across the city and country that 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.

Cary Fukunaga is one of the most significant filmmakers of this generation. The MasterClass will give insights into his craft, challenges and choices of a filmmaker. At just 39 years old, Fukunaga is a Hollywood rarity; a visionary director who is able to marry cinematic brilliance with highbrow concepts and he has quickly become one of the greatest filmmakers of his time.
He made his feature film writing and directorial debut with critical acclaimed movie Sin Nombre. Sin Nombre won awards for best dramatic direction and cinematography at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival. Cary then moved on to his second full-length film Jane Eyre, adapted from Charlotte Bronte’s classic novel. He then directed, wrote and filmed Beasts of No Nation for which he was nominated for the Independent Spirit Award for Best Director and Best Cinematography, and the film also received a nomination for Best Feature. The movie was an official selection at Venice, Telluride, and Toronto film festivals.
In 2014, Fukunaga helmed all eight episodes of the Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson noir thriller for HBO, True Detective. This mastery got Cary a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Direction for a Drama series.
