The mission of The Academy of Mutual Interest in Motion Pictures is first and foremost to unite lovers of films from around the world who value motion pictures as art and entertainment. In doing so, The Academy of MIMP will become a worldwide force in the motion picture industry, able to have a voice in their own selection of each decade's Best Film, followed by Best Actor, Best Actress and supporting actor and actress, as well as contribute to the preservation and quality of films in ways yet to be determined. Our objective is to honor the best film of each decade, as voted on by MIMP members, with a trophy. Later, each "Best Picture of the Decade" winner will go head-to-head to determine which Oscar winning film will be named "Best Picture of the Century" by The Academy of Mutual Interest in Motion Pictures.
Another goal of this Academy is to offer its members an opportunity to explore the notion of "motion picture compatibility." MIMP members can network with other members and meet their closest movie match by comparing their list of Top Ten Films with others. If they find themselves cinematically compatible, they may find their values and interests are equally compatible. Our objective is to offer film lovers a chance to bond with someone on a whole new level, exploring cinema therapy, creating "reel friends," discussion groups and raising awareness that filmgoers are more than spectators. We have a voice. That collective voice is being heard as The Academy of Mutual Interest in Motion Pictures!
