Central American Film Festival

15.11.2021 - 06.12.2021

Our vaccine of choice against wanderlust: this year, let’s celebrate the golden side of all shadows and focus on the positive. Impressive film productions have been completed that we would like to share with you. Since travelling remains difficult anyway, we simply bring Central America to your cinema and living room.

If you want to switch off, you can dive into the colourful world of short films or enjoy one of our feature films: Besides horror and supposed football fanaticism, we show an amusing wedding comedy and a Salvadoran production reminiscent of Iñárritu’s Amores Perros.

The documentaries, on the other hand, are all about resistance. For example, we offer insights into the lives of María Felícita López, a feminist activist who insists on Lenca land ownership in Honduras, Jorge Luís Altuve, who stands up to corruption in Guatemala, or the Nicaraguan poet and socialist politician Cardinal Ernesto.

This year, too, our film programme will be accompanied by experts and framed by live music. We also offer school events, which are a great addition to the classroom with didactic material and on-site discussions.

This year, our festival is dedicated to all those who don’t let it get them down. Especially those who have taken to the streets day after day in our guest country this year, Chile, and through their perseverance have achieved a long overdue rewriting of the Chilean constitution.

¡Nos vemos en la cine!
