THE NEW MEDIUM III Multi-Screen Cinema
THE NEW MEDIUM has been bringing you transformative cinematic experiences since 2016 with its program of genre-defying film works, and by changing our experiences of the cinema hall itself. This year, you will enter not only a multiplex with many screens, but a single hall with multiple screens. Films composed for two and three projections will surround you with images. Sixteen multi-screen films and video installations by pioneering filmmakers and artists, many of them Asian premieres, will be presented in the cinema for the first time over two days at this festival within the film festival.

Young Critics Lab
The Young Critics Lab, an initiative by Jio MAMI Mumbai Film With Star, is a leading platform that aims to create value in terms of film criticism. Each year, the lab calls for young aspiring film critics from all over India. Out of the thousands of entries received, only a handful get the chance to understand the nitty-gritty of film writing and critiquing. This year, the workshop has gone pan India and has gathered a hug response from fresh talents.
