MEMORY! Cinema, based in Paris, is an international non-governmental organisation dedicated to cinema and cultural memory. It focuses on the world’s cinematic heritage and its relationship with current creation, particularly in the South East Asian region.
The association is behind the MEMORY! festival based in Myanmar, a country with a rich film history dating back to the 1920s. It aims to bring to the Burmese public films that were barely accessible for several decades in that country. The festival is also developing several programmes including the Myanmar Script Fund, a commitment to the next generation of Myanmar filmmakers. Also Journalism & Culture, a programme for the next generation of Burmese journalists concerned with culture. The Myanmar 100, a long-term project, aims to restore works of national importance and raise awareness of the need to create a film archive.
