Festival Director
Madurai Film Festival

The festival was started in 1998 in Madurai in response to the nuclear test in  Pokran and subsequent war fever that hit India and Pakistan. 

Essentially we are activists who believe that media has a role to play to bring people together for a positive interaction!

This festival is a space for such democratic expressions for both the filmmakers as well the audience.

Welcome to Madurai Film Festival!
