News

Hi,

Long time without news. It is the last minute for new year’s wishes, so we hope that you will make 2015 happy.

We especially meant to thank all the filmmakers who send their films for the second edition of the Festival in Hamburg last summer.

Overwhelmed at these days, we didn’t take the time to give news but we are still working with other collectives to set up a distribution platform of copyleft movies, collected through the festival or not.

There will be for sure a third edition for the festival scheduled the 28, 29 and 30 August 2015 in Hamburg. Another occasion to meet, to exchange, to watch great and emancipated movies.
Can’t wait.

See you very soon.

Cinema Libre team.
