The 21st edition of the Jio MAMI International Film Festival is all set to roll out from the 17th of this month. While the opening ceremony is taking place on the 17th, the movie screenings will begin from the 18th and will continue until the 24th of this October. Thousands of film buffs are attending the event this year.
Just like every other year, the organizers chose an Indian film as the opening movie of the festival. This year, it will be Malayalam Superstar Nivin Pauly's Moothon, directed by Geetu Mohandas. Renowned filmmaker Anurag Kashyap is the film's producer. All the cast and crew will attend the screening.
Nivin is one of the exciting talents working in Indian cinema right now. On the other side, Geetu's previous film The Liar's Dice is India's official selection for Oscars in 2013. Many Malayalam, as well as South Indian film folks, are eagerly waiting to watch the film at the festival, way before the rest of the world.
