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.


August 21, 2014 - August 24, 2014

In August of 2014 Cinema Politica teams up with the People’s Social Forum to host film screenings, a book launch and a workshop on documentary activism.

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."

CP 10 Year Anniversary

September 18, 2013 - May 31, 2014

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!

Cinema Politica partners up with Sofia International Film Festival to present EVERYDAY REBELLION, BORN IN GAZA, ON THE BRIDE'S SIDE, THE PRICE WE PAY & GULABI GANG at SIFF 2015.
