Founded in 1999, Melbourne Filmoteca is an independent, non-for-profit, volunteer-run group that holds monthly screenings of Latin American and Spanish films at ACMI cinemas in Federation Square, Melbourne, Australia.
Melbourne Filmoteca aims to provide a space for people with a broad range of interests and backgrounds to appreciate film, language, music and cultures from Spain and Latin America.
Film screenings are generally the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm, except for January and August, when we do not present any film.
There are no screenings scheduled in August due to the 2019 Melbourne International Film Festival.
Our team is currently working on the 2020 Program. If you have any film suggestions please send us a message through the Contact-us section below.
We look forward to seeing you all in September!
3rd September ACMI CINEMAS, 6:30 pm at The Treasury Theatre located at Lower Plaza, 1 Macarthur St, Melbourne VIC 3000
Tempest is the parallel journey of two women. Mirror-like, it reflects the impact of the violence and impunity that afflict Mexico. A morning on a quiet normal day: Miriam is arrested at her workplace and is accused, without proof, of “people trafficking”. Adela works as a clown in a travelling circus. Ten years ago, her life was irreversibly transformed with the dissapearance of her daughter. Through their voices, we are drawn into the heart of their feelings, steeped in loss and pain, but also love, dignity and resistance.
