Member Spotlight: cineSPEAK

cinéSPEAK is a Philadelphia-based organization that engages diverse audiences through their independent, repertory + foreign film programming; creating space + centering the stories of individuals and communities that are often underrepresented in mainstream cinema.

Using cinema as a gathering tool to spark dialogue and new relationships amongst neighbors, cinéSPEAK connects individuals with change-maker organizations and institutions while emboldening community members to be keepers and tellers of their own stories. Programming is enlightening and entertaining while being advocacy-driven and community-centered.

Every second Thursday of the month, cinéSPEAK presents a wide array of films at The Rotunda, curated by filmmakers and presenters from all around the city. Screenings always begin at 8pm and are always FREE! 

This month you can catch a special screening of HUMAN FLOW A ground-breaking new documentary about the global refugee crisis from Ai Weiwei. To learn more and view the trailer, click here.
