about cinema politica Carleton

The Carleton Cinema Politica aims to educate, enlighten and inspire individuals using progressive documentary films that cover a wide variety of social, political and environmental themes.

We are committed to raising awareness about pressing contemporary issues, inspiring activism in relation to these issues, and promoting independent media and political arts. In addition to screening a wide range of films, we also invite guest speakers to complement screenings while answering questions and facilitating discussions.

We are proud to continue the series and are looking forward to another year of critical cinema and fruitful discussions. For more information or to sign up for our newsletter and please don't hesitate to contact us. We are also always looking for volunteers!

We are funded by and appreciate donations from People Like You!
