  • Mumbai International Cult Film Festival is one of the most prestigious film-festivals of India. It is a grand and unique platform for the film-makers to showcase their talent.

    December 2021
  • The Mumbai International Cult Film Festival team are knowledgeable and passionate about the film industry and are very supportive of independent filmmakers and screenwriters. They judge the merit of films based upon good storytelling and high production quality; rather than the race, gender, age or sexual orientation of the filmmaker. MICFF runs a very organized and fun festival and competition; and their communications with and support for participants is top notch. They definitely earn and deserve five stars across the board.
