"It’s all around us..you me and the universe is made up of stories.
MAM Movies is an effort to use it’s potential to empower, transform and heal and re-establish our connection with self, community and nature."
MAM: ‘I AM’ is what it means in Sanskrit. It’s an incubation center to assist the emergence of stories that gives us faith, hope and courage. In today’s transiting times, these stories helps us to re-establish connection with our self, with our community and with mother nature.
Founded in 2007, MAM MOVIES has worked extensively with young filmmakers and non-profit organizations to encourage participatory and community media. Through various experiments, we have tried to harness the innate sensibilities of the youth, sensitize them to the societal, economic and environmental challenges to bring about social transformation through stories and effective communication.
