CICAE’s president pays a visit to spanish members
CICAE’s President Detlef Rossmann flew to Palma de Mallorca last week, where he could meet the director of CineCiutat Cinema and President of Spanish art cinemas network „Cinearte“ Pedro Barbadillo. They discussed together about art cinemas’ current economic situation in Spain and about the importance of theatrical windows for the sustainability of European art cinemas.
Cinearte joined CICAE last December as the Board of Directors unanimously validated its candidature. The Spanish network was funded in 2014 and has been contributing since then with now 32 cinema members to he rebirth oft the art cinema sector in Spain, which was harshly affected by the crisis. CICAE is all the more glad to work with this Spanish association in the future.
During his visit in Palma Detlef Rossmann could also visit the CineCiutat Cinema with Director Pedro Barbadillo, who introduced him to his delivery system, the competition in the region as well as to his film program and the structure of the CineCiutat cinema association.
