The biannual Mumbai International Film Festival now in its 16th edition celebrates the life and work of the three Torchbearers of Indian Animation, Shri RamMohan, Shri Bhimsain & Shri V.G.Samant. All three sadly passed away in the last 2 years since the 15th edition (which thankfully saw a retrospective of Bhimsainji’s work in his presence)
This special section is curated by Chetan with retrospective homage screenings of their work, an 80ft long exhibit of their life in animation and a masterclass on the art of Ram Mohan ” The man who spoke in Pictures”
