European Art Cinema Day, the first common international initiative undertaken by exhibitors to promote European films and the local cinema experience, will take place around the world this Sunday 14 October. Launched in 2016 by the CICAE (International Confederation of Art Cinemas) in partnership with Europa Cinemas, this third edition of European Art Cinema Day will celebrate the diversity and creativity of European films and exhibitors with specially curated programmes taking place in movie theatres around the world.
With the addition of six new participating countries, Canada, Colombia, Ireland, Iran, the Netherlands and the USA, European Art Cinema Day has expanded its reach to 39 countries for this year's edition. Organised in collaboration with distributors, producers, rights holders and filmmaking talent, the initiative features preview screenings, children’s films and cinema classics, as well as a wide variety of guests, events and exhibitions curated to attract local audiences.
Three renowned European filmmakers will serve as European Art Cinema Day's ambassadors: German director Christian Petzold, French animation pioneer and BAFTA winner Michel Ocelot, and Italian director Alice Rohrwacher. The ambassadors are set to participate in local events and will promote the day through their networks.
The European Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society Mariya Gabriel, the Vice-President of the European Parliament Evelyne Gebhardt as well as the French and German Culture Ministers Françoise Nyssen and Monika Grütters have also been appointed as patrons for the day.
Among the events taking place on Sunday 14 October, Brussels’ BOZAR will host an exclusive premiere of Christian Petzold’s Transit [+leggi anche:
