One of India’s biggest film festivals, Mumbai Film Festival moved online during the pandemic and has not taken place as a physical event since October 2019.

It was scheduled to return as an in-person event in March 2022, but moved online at the last minute, with the organizers citing “logistical and financial challenges”, although cinemas were open at the time and the country was not in the midst of a Covid wave.
