About MIFF

Mumbai International Film Festival for Documentary, Short Fiction and Animation, popularly known as MIFF, is the oldest and largest film festival for non-feature films in South Asia. Began in 1990 as BIFF and later re-christened as MIFF, this international event is organized by the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting, Government of India. Since its inception in 1990, the festival has grown in scope and scale and is attended by cineastes from around the globe. The Organizing Committee of MIFF is headed by the Secretary, I&B and consists of eminent film personalities, documentary makers and senior media officials.

MIFF provides a platform for documentary film makers from all over the world to meet, exchange ideas, explore the possibilities of co-productions and marketing of documentary, short and animation films and also broadening the vision of the film makers vis-à-vis world cinema.

Documentary cinema creates the most significant impact to the world. One that not only educates, inspires and motivates a change in the society but also acts as a tool that transcends cultures and boundaries. The flourishing non-fiction film movement spearheaded by MIFF has gained momentum with the increased need for more realistic content opposed to the more dramatized and commercial fiction stories. MIFF with participation of world’s leading documentary making countries with their best content, gives Documentary, Animation and Short Fiction film makers their wings so that they can soar into deeper conceptualizations that accommodate narratives of the past, present and future of the society.
