Mongolian Film Institute

Монгол

Mongolian Film Institute is a non-governmental organization that promotes quality cinema in Mongolia. We try to help foster the curiosity and literacy of a new generation of Mongolian moviegoers who crave an alternative cinematic experience to what mainstream movies have to offer. Also, with our flagship activity, Golden Ger International Film Festival, we try to directly develop, educate and challenge young Mongolian filmmakers, as well as through audience development.

Mongolian Film Institute was founded by Mongolian film industry professionals including Jigjidsuren Gombojav, a legendary filmmaker of Mongolian cinema and the People’s Artist of Mongolia and Ikhbayar Urchuud, the founder of Golden Ger International Film Festival.

Mongolian Film Institute also organized Swedish Film Days in Mongolia 2019, American Film Showcase 2019 and American Film Showcase 2020. Mongolian Film Institute is the partner of Ulaanbaatar International Film Festival.
