From the outside, Cinemaissí may look like just another festival. But it is much more. In this blog Cinemaissí’s President Aime Accorsi tells why.
Languages around the world are disappearing at an alarming rate.
That is why the UN has declared 2019 the International Year of Indigenous Languages. IYIL’s mission is to raise awareness of indigenous languages to benefit the people who speak and keep those languages alive, and also highlight their contribution to our world’s cultural diversity.
