about cinema politica Concordia

Cinema Politica is a 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. Cinema Politica's biggest and longest running local was founded at Concordia University, Montreal in 2004 and ever since it attracts between 300 and 600 people to its weekly screenings. Each semester programming is focused around themes that touch on social justice, environmental and cultural identity issues, and all screenings aim to bridge political independent filmmaking, local activism and civic education and engagement. Cinema Poltica Concordia is administered by the Concordia Cinema Politica Student Association (CCPSA) which is a legally incorporated non-profit fee-levy group funded by undergraduate and graduate students at Concordia.

All our screenings occur during the Fall and Winter semesters and take place on Mondays @ 7:00 pm in Room H110, at 1455 de Maisonneuve W. with a few exceptions. All screenings are BY DONATION and open to the public, and are followed by discussions or Q&As with filmmakers and/or local organizers.

If you want to GET INVOLVED or simply learn more about what we do and how we do it, please concordia [at] cinemapolitica [dot] org (email us) or come to our screenings and talk to the organizers.

You can WATCH the trailers for our upcoming screenings, interviews with filmmakers and activists, and footage from our events and post-screening discussions here.

You can LOAN or STREAM previously screened Cinema Political films through the Concordia Library collection called Cinema Politica Selections.
