4th European Arthouse Cinema Day is approaching

Little by little the big day is approaching. Less than 3 weeks to go for the 4th edition of the European Arthouse Cinema Day!

On 13th of October hundreds of cinemas located both in or outside of Europe will celebrate the diversity of European cinema as well as their own venues!

Numerous cinemas have already signed up. If you want or are planning to participate, please register under the link below. Participant cinemas have complete freedom to take part at any level and to create their own programme on the condition that it includes European films.

Registrations are free of charge and open until 6th October 2019.


We are glad to announce our ambassadors for the 4th European Arthouse Cinema Day 2019:

Céline Sciamma (PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE, Winner Best Screenplay Cannes 2019)
Jean-Pierre & Luc Dardenne (YOUNG AHMED, Winner Best Director Cannes 2019)


Our new design has also been unveiled! We have the honor to count with the collaboration of the renowned animation filmmaker Milorad Krstić who has created the illustration for this upcoming edition’s poster. Krstić won a Silver Bear in Berlin 1995 for his first short film MY BABY LEFT ME. Last year, he world-premiered at Locarno’s Piazza Grande his multi-award winning fantasy opus animated film RUBEN BRANDT, COLLECTOR. The film won the CICAE Art Cinema Award at the Seville European Film Festival.

Rather than imitating its natural similarity to classic movie theaters, I chose to portray an abstract idea of an arthouse. I painted it as a very high, mysterious tower without an entrance door and without any windows. However, there is an exit door of the tower, closed to the top and closed to the clouds, with a stairway to the flat roof. There you can see some happy people who can fly and who enjoy the unconventional aesthetic view from the roof.

We launched a EACD Instagram channel.

We would like to hear little anecdotes about your cinemas and their history and share them with our audience and followers.
