MEMORY! Cinema is a non-profit entity created in 2013, acting on a global scale in the field of cinema. Its main lines of action are the training of filmmakers and the support of independent film projects, access to culture (through the organization of festivals), the preservation and promotion of film heritage, as an integral part of the memory of a country.
Freedom of expression is one of its main drivers.
Two main programs :
Myanmar Script Fund: a year-round recurring program launched in 2016 to support independent filmmakers in Myanmar. This program has never been interrupted despite the pandemic and the 2021 coup.
MEMORY! International Film Festival: annual mainstream festival, whose editions in Burma since 2014 were interrupted after the February 2021 coup. An edition is in preparation in Bangkok, Thailand.
MEMORY! Cinema is mainly financed by public partners.
