FINCAR – International Women Filmmakers Festival
Between August 14 and 19, FINCAR – International Women Filmmakers Festival arrives at its second edition with a program of over 70 shorts, medium-length and feature films from various parts of the world and screenings in three public street cinemas: Cinema São Luiz, Cinema da Fundação Joaquim Nabuco (both in Recife) and Cine Teatro Bianor Mendonça Monteiro (in Camaragibe, metropolitan region of Recife).
Sponsored through the Pernambuco State Audiovisual Production Program (Funcultura – Audiovisual Fund), the festival increased its programming and this time invested in the decentralization of educational activities and cinematographic exhibitions produced by women. In this edition, FINCAR has two programs of short films designed for public school students and a screening specially programmed for children’s audiences; these screenings will take place in Recife and Camaragibe. Another proposal in our educational activities, is the workshop Women in Latin American Cinema, facilitated by Lílian de Alcântara, with a focus on the works by Sara Gomez and Paz Encina.
This year’s program continues the partnerships from the first edition, such as the FINCAR-FEPEC Film Clubs Circuit. Post-festival, a call will be launched for film clubs interested in showing movies selected by the curation team, as we did in 2016. Another partnership that remains in 2018 is the FICINE Program (Black Cinema Itinerant Forum), curated by Janaína Oliveira, who will attend the festival for discussion with the audience.
New partnerships enable the exchange of experiences between curators in the 2018 edition of FINCAR. The Special Screening: Cachoeira Doc Retrospective was built with the curator Amaranta Cesar, who will also be present for a debate with the public. Accompanied by Janaína Oliveira, and with the presence of FINCAR’s 07 curators and 05 assistant-curators, Amaranta will participate in the event Curatorial Experiences from Women’s Perspectives.
We inaugurate in this edition the FINCAR Membership campaign, in which 150 women (cis, trans, transvestite, lesbian, bissexual) living in suburbs and peripheries, through accreditation, will have free pass throughout the whole festival. Another novelty will be the launch of our festival catalog, which will include texts written by some of our curators and assistant-curators, with parts of their reflections on the curatorial process and the programming design.
We’ll see you soon in the movie theaters! Half promotional tickets for all at Cinema São Luiz and Cinema da Fundação (Derby), with tickets prices at R$ 3 and R$ 2, respectively. At Cine Teatro Bianor Mendonça Monteiro tickets will be free. Check out the complete FINCAR 2018 schedule and come along!
