New Executive Board at CICAE, the International Confederation of Arthouse cinemas

The International Confederation of Arthouse Cinemas, the CICAE has witnessed a generational change at the annual general assembly during the 72nd Cannes Film Festival. Christian Bräuer from Germany, CEO of the Berlin based Yorck Cinema Group and president of the German Arthouse Association AG Kino – Gilde has been elected to become the new president of the CICAE. He follows in the steps of Detlef Rossmann, elected to be the honorary president.

“Cinemas are the heart chambers of film”

Arthouse cinemas all over the world stand for cultural diversity, and bring into people’s lives global topics in a local context. In this time of digital change, cinemas are especially important as meeting places. “Cinemas are the heart chambers of film,” says Christian Bräuer. “Films are being brought to life on the big screen and deploy their societal relevance through the common experience.” In order to strengthen the role of cinemas it is essential to form networks. Diversity and open society are increasingly under pressure in many countries. The CICAE has the vocation to strengthen the work of film theatres as places of culture.
