CWC Mission

The mission of the Cincinnati World Cinema is educational and cultural: to provide the community with outstanding motion pictures that explore the human condition and celebrate cultural diversity.

Our Focus

Cincinnati World Cinema is an AVO (All Volunteer Organization) presenting films that otherwise might not be seen on a big screen in this market, including international, documentary, American independent, live-action and animated shorts and locally-produced works.

We are committed to the importance of films that inform and educate, as well as entertain. We believe in cinema as a collective experience on a large screen with a film community sharing a common bond extending from the onscreen experience to the discussions which flow afterward. To enhance the educational experience, our post-film discussions are led by local authorities and/or filmmakers.

Cincinnati World Cinema collaborates with arts, cultural and educational organizations to curate and co-present individual films or thematic collections consistent with the CWC mission. When appropriate, we offer multi-disciplinary events, combining film with live music, theatre segments, readings, etc.

In the process of exploring the human condition, our films touch on a broad spectrum of cultural and societal issues. Films presented by CWC are offered in the public interest and do not signify organizational endorsement of any issue, cause or group.




Using This Website

Navigation of the CWC site is simple, with one or two clicks to get you where you want to be. Coming, current and recent films are listed separately on the home page, and each film event has dedicated page of its own, including synopses, film notes, trailers, director and discussion leader bios, reviews, etc.

To view event pages for current films, look for the blue info circle and use the link on the home page that says Click here for film and ticket details. You can also use the internal Search function, on the home page.

The black header box at the top of most pages serves as a main menu and contains eight self-explanatory links: About; Film Event Archive (in reverse chronological order); Links and Contact. The text Cincinnati World Cinema and spinning blue globe will take you back to the homepage; below which are three icon links: Buy Tickets; Announcement List signup and CWC Facebook.
