We are pleased to announce that the World Cinema Collection has just been expanded to include contemporary films from ArtMattan Productions highlighting the African diaspora. These feature films include award-winning titles by directors from Curaçao, Cuba, Haiti, and Trinidad and Tobago.
ArtMattan Productions distributes films that focus on the human experience of black people in Africa, the Caribbean, North and South America, and Europe, and curates the annual African Diaspora Film Festival in New York City.
With more than 400 feature films from the most renowned directors across the globe, the World Cinema Collection includes the best of the silent era, groundbreaking international directors, American and European masterpieces from the mid-20th century, and award-winning contemporary films featured by Global Lens. The collection shines a light on the history of cinema while also providing a glimpse into the cultures and issues of countries around the world, making it useful beyond film studies departments by bringing value to programs in area studies, political science, history, world languages, and more.
