CP 10 Year Anniversary

September 18, 2013 - May 31, 2013

In September 2013 Cinema Politica turns ten years old. It's hard to believe it's been a full decade of screening independent political documentary to audiences across Canada and abroad, and it's even harder to believe we're still going strong!

Divine Interventions: Documentary, Spirituality and Social Justice explores the role spirituality, religion and secularism play in fostering or inhibiting a plurality of perspectives, understanding across cultural, religious, and ethnic borders, and participation in social causes. This screening initiative starts in inclusive spaces where audiences, artists and activists interrogate the intersection of spirituality and social justice, and subsequently moves on to a sustained online conversation with the aim of fostering engaged communities across geographic barriers.

The Commons

September 01, 2012 - May 31, 2013

For the last decade (2003-2013) Cinema Politica has built a strong reputation for connecting audiences to important, under-represented, independent film and video. While the films we program tend to focus on issues, topics and subjects that revolve around social justice, identity and the environment, we have decided to seek out, program and disseminate titles that specifically highlight the intersection of social justice, the economy and the environment, in a special program called "The Commons."


September 01, 2012 - December 31, 2013

While documentary is in itself an art form, often called "informational art," documentaries that focus on other art forms or artists working in various art milieus are uniquely positioned as works that examine art via art. With this special selection of films we celebrate the impulse to make art about art.
