European Art Cinema Day

On October 14th, 2018 the third European Art Cinema Day will take place in cinemas all over the world.

On this day, more than 600 theatres will celebrate the diversity of European film with previews, classics and films aimed at children. Discussions, receptions and exhibitions will demonstrate the engagement of art cinemas in favour for a living cultural diversity. Support from local and national media partners will be sought.
