Movimientos showcases the latest, groundbreaking documentaries by emerging and established filmmakers, exploring political and social issues affecting Latin America.

We provide an open platform for independent filmmakers and organisations to highlight issues and raise awareness of what are largely unreported topics.

We have a large active audience and political discourse runs through our nights. Please see latest for news about what we’re screening at the moment.

We aim to provide information in a non-dogmatic way, ensuring we’re open to different opinions. Broadly the voices we try to represent are those of marginalised groups, communities and people fighting injustice or seeking to resist the might of the dominant forces in their country, whether they are unaccountable multinational corporations, governments or military. These themes form the backbone of our content, but we are also very interested in approaching Latin America from a more general cultural and artistic perspective.

If you have a film you would like to show with Movimientos and it is in line with our generals interests then please contact us. The more we can spread the word, the better. See film campaigns for more information.
