XII. Central American Film Festival - Vienna 2020

Austria






Description

The XII. Central American Film Festival 2020 in Vienna

Corona virus. Forest fires. Discrimination and police violence. A number of unpleasant incidents has unfolded in 2020, and latent problems took center stage after the tragic case of George Floyd and others.

Many of us are lucky to not experience these misfortunes ourselves; all the reason why we should listen carefully, pay attention and take action. Papaya Media Association and the Filmarchiv Austria would therefore like to support you this year by showing again films that address diverse social issues.

Our program highlights; new facets of iconic characters of Latin culture, El Salvador’s strict abortion law or life on the largest garbage dump in Central America. Fights against injustice are also documented, as we offer among others insight into a feminist theater project in El Salvador and the Guatemalan workers' movement.

Among all the burning topics, there is also pleasure and beauty to be found, because in addition to the many gripping documentaries we also show feature and short films. Due to the events and circumstances of this year, our festival will take place in a different format: online!

In the comfort of your own home you can enjoy Central American culture in Vienna and everywhere, allowing you to take advantage of the involuntary home leisure time!
So sit back, relax and enjoy the films either through live streaming or up to 48 hours later. For feedback and discussions contact us through the social networks.

Beyond that, let us surprise you! Browse our website and let yourself be inspired!

We inform you of our newest film productions and of many worthy discussion topics. In addition, this year we also dedicate a whole festival evening to short films, making
our program more diverse and lively. So even online, we would to make your grey November more colorful this unusual year by allowing you to enjoy our program from the sofa or the hammock.

¡Ánimo y no se dejen vencer!
