Cineteca Nacional International Film Festival

This past Thursday marked the start of the 68th Cineteca International Film Festival at the Cuale Cultural Center. The festival is free of charge for everyone and will run until Sunday, February 7th, 2021.

Starting on Thursday, January 14 until Sunday, February 07, the city will host the 68th National Film Festival of the National Cineteca, with a sample of 13 feature films that have premiered and been recognized by the most prestigious international festivals around the world.

This time around, the screenings will take place from Thursday to Sunday with two showings per day, at 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm.

The festival program includes a Joan of Arc sequel, a Luis Buñuel cartoon, a nouvelle vague classic, an epic family drama from China, a Brazilian sfi-ci feature, new social discourses by Ken Loach and Robert Guédiguian, powerful stories by women facing war, an unhealthy passion, a medieval confinement and the loss of a child.
