Local Membership

The Cinema Politica Network is made up of semi-autonomous film exhibition sites that, in a nod to the spirit of union organizing and community building, we call Locals.
Since 2003, we have had over 100 Locals from all over the world organizing community screening series and micro-festivals. Our current film catalogue offers locals the opportunity to select their own programs from over 800 titles.
