SNS | New Delhi |

PVR Cinemas has launched the Delhi edition of the Year Round Programme by Mumbai Academy of Moving Image (MAMI).

MAMI festival board members Zoya Akhtar, Anurag Kashyap, Vishal Bhardwaj, Anupama Chopra and Smriti Kiran launched the programme on 9-10 June.

The festival’s arrival in Delhi was marked by the screening of Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs at PVR ECX, Chanakya. It was followed by Ari Aster’s Hereditary on Sunday.

Speaking on the occasion, Anupama Chopra said, “I am thrilled that in the 20th year of MAMI, we are stepping out of Mumbai. We hope we can help foster a great cinema culture in Delhi.”

Managing Director of PVR Ltd Ajay Bijli said, “Year Round Programme by MAMI represents one of the first opportunities for audiences in Delhi to see the very best from across the globe. This was a natural progression for us to support. PVR has always encouraged and facilitated people to build a relationship with a broad range of films, ensuring that film culture can be accessed and enjoyed by everyone across.”

He added: “With this launch, PVR aspires to bring together distinguished industry specialists and discerning movie lovers through accessible screenings, panels, workshops and showcasing cinema that embraces diversity, innovation and unique perspectives. Aimed at featuring critically acclaimed filmmakers, industry professionals, and award-winning talent around the world, this programme is rich with opportunity – to stay informed, be challenged, feel the pleasure of escape and see the world differently.”

The MAMI Year Round Programme, which started in 2016 from Mumbai, is a one-of-a-kind event established with a belief that it is not enough to have a week-long film festival. The Academy now hosts weekly screenings, workshops and conversation sessions for film lovers.

The Delhi Edition will take place at the newly launched PVR ECX, Chanakyapuri.

Till date, The MAMI Year Round Programme in Mumbai has screened over 40 films, which include Lady Bird, The Square, Zama, The Shape of Water, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri and Village Rockstars. There are about 7000+ members enrolled for this programme.
