Cinemaissí Film Festival brings Latin America to Helsinki from 23rd to 27th October 2019.

This year we celebrate diversity with a focus on presenting the plurality of Latin America. Themes range from Women on Screen, LGBTQ+ rights, Indigenous cultures and Social Rights movements. We welcome you to enjoy a selection of 15 quality films from 10 Latin American countries.

The festival will be opened on 23 October at 19:00 in Cinema Orion with Peruvian film Retablo by Alvaro Delgado-Aparicio. The film has won +20 awards in renowned international film festivals, such as Berlinare, La Habana and New York.

Films like The Heiresses and Candelaria are hearty stories about the most unexpected forms of survival of two long relationships, one in Paraguay and the other one in Cuba after Fidel Castro. The selection also includes powerful documentaries like Tranny Fag (Brazil) that exposes the challenges of being a poor, black transgender in a society that is every day less and less intolerant through the powerful funk/hip hop music of MC Linda Quebrada.

On Saturday 26 October, Cinemaissí's legendary Gran Fiesta will heat up the dancefloor with latin tunes at Grand Georgia from 21:00 till 4:00.

We welcome you to enjoy a selection of quality films from all over Latin America. See you in Cinemaissí 2019!
