In view of the coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 edition of the Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival has been postponed. The Mumbai Academy of Moving Image (MAMI) has taken a unanimous decision to push the festival in light of the uncertainty over the reopening of cinemas in Mumbai. The festival will, however, be releasing its official selection of Indian films for the year later in August.

“It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to postpone the Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival 2020 to next year,” said Isha Ambani (Board of Trustees, MAMI). “It is our responsibility to do everything we can to keep our communities safe during this crisis. We are humbled and grateful for the special place that the festival has carved for itself in Mumbai’s cultural landscape. We promise that the festival will come back with fullness in spirit and enthusiasm for our beloved city of Mumbai.” 

Festival Director Anupama Chopra added: “The world is grappling with a global calamity. 2020 is about survival, introspection and humility. We have decided to prioritise healing this year and hold the festival in its full splendour next year. We will focus and put our might behind our Year Round Programme's digital imprint that has already created a stir with Dial M For Films and MAMI YRP Home Theatre.”

An announcement regarding the dates of Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival in 2021 will be made soon.
