Cinema Politica

Cin­ema Polit­ica is a Mon­tre­al-based media arts, non-prof­it net­work of com­mu­nity and cam­pus locals that screen inde­pen­dent polit­i­cal film and video by Cana­dian and inter­na­tional artists through­out Cana­da and abroad. We believe in the pow­er of art to not only enter­tain but to engage, inform, inspire, and pro­voke social change. Cin­ema Polit­ica is the largest vol­un­teer-run, com­mu­nity and cam­pus-based doc­u­men­tary-screen­ing net­work in the world. All screen­ings are by donation.

Cin­ema Polit­ica is com­mit­ted to sup­port­ing alter­na­tive, inde­pen­dent, and rad­i­cal polit­i­cal film and video, and the artists who dare to devote time, pas­sion and resources to telling sto­ries from the mar­gins. We pro­gram works that fea­ture under-rep­re­sent­ed char­ac­ters and tell sto­ries which con­front and chal­lenge con­ven­tional fic­tion and doc­u­men­tary narratives.
