Profile Myanmar Moving Image Center (MMIC) was started as a Burma Film and Video School in January 2003. It was started as an educational organization with an aim to provide a quality education on film and video for Myanmar people. Since then the school has organized numerous screenings and discussions on many film and video works from around the world (the films that have been introduced include works by Marcel Carne, Andrej Ujica, Dziga Vertov, Bill Viola, etc.) And since 2005, MMIC has collaborated with the Czech government and the Czech Film School and together organized an annual Czech Film Festival with support by Alliance Francaise, starting from the Czech Animation Film Festival. Since two years ago this festival has included a workshop on film and video making by experienced Czech film directors - the short-film making workshop in 2006 and workshop on reporting art on video in 2007. MMIC has changed the name to the current one in 2007 adding more functions: apart from educational activities we have now distributing assistance, archive of works by Myanmar film and video makers, and production and post-production assistance. Currently we are setting up a library of books and DVDs on film and videos for the educational purpose.
