European Art Cinema Day – 15th October 2017


The second edition of the European Art Cinema Day (EACD) will take place on Sunday 15th October 2017.

The event was launched successfully in 2016 by the CICAE (International Confederation of Arthouse Cinemas) in partnership with Europa Cinemas. More than 300 cinemas all over Europe took part in last year’s very first Edition!

By participating in this event as Europa Cinemas Network Member, the exhibitors will have the opportunity to actively highlight their identity and their European convictions to the public as well as the media. They can use this opportunity to create an event in their theatre: previews, debates with audiences, special screenings and activities for young audiences. The initiative can also be taken advantage of to promote one’s membership of the “arthouse movement” and the Europa Cinemas Network by making original choices in terms of films and activities offered.

What makes the Europa Cinemas’ film theatre distinctive is that they clearly display their European focus in terms of their programming - dedicated to European films, mostly non-national - and activities in the areas of promotion and innovation aiming at increasing audiences for these films.

Outside the walls of the film theatre, the EACD will showcase on a European as on an international level the cultural diversity of European productions as well as the everyday commitment of the network’s cinemas to championing demanding and original programming for all audiences.


PROMOTION TRAILER: to help the exhibitors promote their own EACD, Europa Cinemas is currently producing a trailer (duration: max. 40 seconds) which will be available for download around mid-September. It can be screened a few weeks before 15th October 2017 in order to highlight the exhibitors’ participation at the European Art Cinema Day, their cinema and their activities!

ARTWORK: we’ll provide a set of artwork and marketing materials which will be also available for download. They can be used for the online or print marketing tools and the cinema’s own info and logo can be included.

We will keep you regularly posted of any news related to the EACD!
