Cinema Refugi

A campaign to build awareness of defending fundamental rights through films

Cinema Refugi is a film season that takes cinema to different Barcelona neighbourhoods through films embracing the values of peace, solidarity, coexistence and cultural diversity. Its objective is to build awareness about the defence of basic human rights.

Cinema Refugi is a civic campaign to build awareness coordinated through the ‘Barri Refugi’ network, and receives support from Barcelona City Council’s Global Justice and International Co-operation departments. By traversing cross-border cinematographic territory, this action explores the global humanitarian emergency that we are experiencing, and appeals to citizens to take action concerning the suffering of refugees and displaced people.

We launched this project in 2016. The member festivals of Catalunya Film Festivals are those currently involved in this creation of awareness in different areas of the city.
