Mission Statement

Cimatheque is an alternative film centre in Downtown Cairo dedicated to celebrating the diversity, beauty and power of film from the region and beyond

Born from the experience of working within the sector at an exceptional moment in Egypt’s history, it is a space built for filmmakers and film-lovers alike, as a place for watching films and discussing them, for learning about cinema and creating it, that believes in the importance of preserving film heritage and looks to the future through supporting alternative film culture

With a year-round programme of screenings, workshops and events, we are open to all ages and levels of experience, and aim to provide a dynamic, well-equipped space for filmmakers, audiences and their communities to meet and start conversations, to learn and exchange ideas, and above all enjoy the fullness of cinema and participate in the world of film
