ARTHOUSE CINEMAS EXPRESS SOLIDARITY WITH UKRAINIAN EXHIBITORS AND PEOPLE OF THE COUNTRY AND TAKE A STAND AGAINST THE WAR

Arthouse cinemas bring people together, create spaces for discussion, show diversity in the world and in our societies, defend the freedom of art and see themselves as partners of all filmmakers around the world who, with courage, talent and sensitivity, dare to look at the world in crisis. In this way we participate in a living democratic society.

The attack of Russia on Ukraine is of great concern to us. In the face of the shocking images and news that have reached us in the past days, we are asking ourselves about our responsibility for a free and open world and what we can do now against this feeling of ‘powerlessness’.

As public spaces, we can show our solidarity with Ukraine and all the people committed to peace and civil society. On our display sites and on the screen. We can show our audiences films, share thoughts, create a sense of community. We can help by providing hope and showing that democracy and freedom are not naïve dreams, but strong and attainable ideals to defend in an increasingly uncertain world.

Cinema makes us dream. But it also makes us face our responsibilities.
