Billboard from September 12 to 18, 2022

CINEMA IN THE CITY seeks to invite more and more people to the cinema beyond the theaters. From community spaces, independent and university film clubs, cultural venues, independent commercial rooms and public television. A truly democratic distribution network was created to reach old and, above all, new viewers.

The center of these efforts will be the Government of Mexico City and the Secretariat of Culture of Mexico City via PROCINE.

One of the priorities of public policies in the field of culture for the Government of Mexico City is the promotion and development of quality cinematographic exhibition, especially of Mexican cinema, through the development of audience training projects, support to production and research; professionalization of the independent exhibition and the diffusion of our cinematography.

To bring more people from the capital to the movie screens, the valuable contribution of institutions such as the Mexican Institute of Cinematography (IMCINE), private, national and foreign distributors and producers; as well as that of filmmakers who have the exhibition rights for their films, and the very important participation of the dozens of film festivals that take place every year in the city.

In the cinema we not only tell and see our stories, we also appropriate others. Bringing everyone closer to cinematographic art is fulfilling a promise: making the exercise of cultural rights effective.

TALKS AND DEBATES

In addition to seeing stories, we will bring the creators closer to the viewers to create a space for circular dialogue, with the aim that the viewers learn about the creation processes and the artists and/or technicians can hear live the impact of their work on the public, generating a space for coexistence and discussion also among the participants.

NEIGHBORHOOD BILLBOARDS

The public will be able to consult the billboard of their neighborhood, neighborhood or original town through the media of each venue and through the PROCINE page.
