In 2010 Cinema Politica initiated a program to support independent Canadian documentaries during the production stage, and before broadcasters and/or financiers have "come on board." In other words, we started Adopt-a-doc to offer our support to independent films struggling to get made in the very tough climate of documentary in Canada.The two films that CP is supporting under this initiative are Granny Power (Release date estimate: 2012) and The Secret Trial 5.
Beginning in 2010, Cinema Politica has co-sponsored the annual POV Magazine special issue on education. POV is Canada's independent documentary magazine, published by the Documentary Organization of Canada.
Cinema Politica is the largest campus and community based documentary screening network in the world. We are a Montreal-based non-profit media arts organization dedicated to the dissemination of independent political works by Canadian and international filmmakers.
