European Arthouse Cinema Day 2019

SAVE THE DATE! On 13th October 2019 we will celebrate the 4th edition of the European Arthouse  Cinema Day, the only international joint initiative undertaken by cinema exhibitors in  collaboration with distributors, sales agents, right holders and cinema operators to promote  European films, develop new audiences and boost the cinema experience across the world.

The initiative, successfully launched in 2016 by the CICAE in partnership with Europa Cinemas, reunited more than 650 cinemas spread in 39 countries in 2018.


At the beginning of June, we will open registrations for the 4th edition of the event. We will set out by sharing with you first ideas and tools to help you start preparing this special day to celebrate cinemas and highlight your daily commitment in engaging with new audiences through rich and diversified European programming.

Special programmes will be organised for young audiences on Friday 11th and Monday 14th October.


We will again put at your disposal end of August a set of artwork and promotional materials including a trailer to promote your own EACD, your cinema and your activities within the framework of the European Arthouse Cinema Day 2019.

Stay tuned by keeping up with our newsletter and Facebook page! We will update you regularly of any news related to the European Arthouse Cinema Day 2019.
