One more year Cinemaissí creates a space for experiencing high-quality Latin American cinema while also inviting the audience to dive into thought-provoking discussions and reflections.
In this edition Cinemaissí presents fresh perspectives: half of the films are directed by female filmmakers, new Latin American talents are highlighted, and we have taken care that children can also enjoy Latin American cinema.
Cinemaissí can be enjoyed at its fullest from anywhere in Finland: making full use of last year’s learning experience, we will again be a hybrid festival. We offer a carefully curated programme of 21 films and short films, which can be enjoyed at the theatres (Cinema Orion and Caisa Cultural Centre in Helsinki). Simultaneously, 13 of them can be watched in our online platform in FesthomeTV. Films online will be available during the whole festival.
Just as previous years, in this edition we bring more than films to our audience. Two panel discussions are organised right after movie screenings, as well as a Q&A with the director of ‘The First Death of Joana’. Learn about the time and place of these interesting conversations by checking our Events page.
Our Blog is also filled with expert film’s reviews, directors’ greetings and interviews. Finally, to complete the program we have prepared two screenings in Oulu free of charge. Get to know all the details here and here.
Explore our Program for this year and the four categories we offer you: Our Land, New Voices, Luchadoras, and Blood Ties. All of them aim at making you feel, wonder, and think outside the box.
Tickets are already available for sale. Read all the info here.
Wherever you are in Finland, Cinemaissí invites you this autumn to dream of realities that exist beyond our everyday life by bringing you the best contemporary Latin American cinema.
