MEMORY! Cinema is a non-profit organisation set up in 2013 to work on a global scale in the field of cinema. It is based in Paris and works mainly in Myanmar. Its main areas of action are training filmmakers and supporting independent film projects, providing access to culture (through the annual organisation of a festival), and preserving and promoting film heritage as an integral part of a country’s memory.
Freedom of expression is one of its key drivers.
Following the military coup in Myanmar in February 2021, MEMORY! suspended the organisation of its festival and adjusted its training programme for filmmakers. The Myanmar Script Fund thus became the Myanmar Film Fund, a new programme enabling independent filmmakers in Myanmar to continue filming in spite of everything.
