Mongolian Film Institute

An organization behind Golden Ger International Film Festival


Jigjidsuren 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, Altan Khalis International Film Festival, we try to develop, educate and challenge young Mongolian filmmakers.


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 Altan Khalis International Film Festival.
