As the world gets back to its feet after a disruptive pandemic, MIFF presents the perfect opportunity for filmmakers and audiences to share experiences and engage with exciting and thought provoking documentaries, shorts and animation films from the country and around the world, said Vice President of India Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu. In a special message, the Vice President extended his best wishes for MIFF 2022 and hoped that the festival will achieve outstanding success this year.

“Over the past sixteen editions, MIFF has provided a rich and inspiring space for documentary filmmakers and film lovers to share their passion for the medium and exchange a range of views and ideas. Non feature films can help us understand, reveal and engage with the truth in ways which are unique and enduring”, the Vice President said.

The Vice President expressed hope that this edition of MIFF kindles among film lovers a renewed fascination and appreciation towards documentary, short and animation films and also inspires them to be positive change agents in society.
