About Us

Cinemaissí Team

CINEMAISSÍ – LATIN AMERICAN FILM FESTIVAL aims to promote the very best and the most fascinating cinema from Latin America in Finland.

The film festival consolidates as a permanent forum for analyzing and debate towards the understanding the Latin American culture and society.

Cinemaissí, the Latin American Film Festival in Helsinki, was founded in 2005 by the non-profit association with the same name. We are dedicated to promoting the Latin American culture, its diversity and its colour by means of cinema and related events.

It is our responsibility and pride to present to our public a carefully chosen and compiled variety of stories and point of views from Latin America. Cinemaissí welcomes with open arms everyone interested in the Latin American region and who wants to promote the culture of the continent by means of cinema, art and culture.
