More than an uninterrupted flow of films, the Black Movie Festival is a teaching tool, a space for encounters and meetings, a platform that relays information from around the world. Above all, it's also a free zone that needs to be protected, a dike against the soothing cultural standardization of today's world. Long live Black Movie!
Tracking down really different films is not the purpose of all festivals. Characterized by a certain inflexibility, Black Movie stands apart. No trace of block-busters with their stars and red carpets ensuring full press coverage at previews. Neither does the festival go in for art-house cinema, theme films or happenings. With a few exceptions, it tends to stick to features – often the best length for good films...
For fifteen years, Black Movie has been questioning and moving us – fifteen years in which its programming, at once cutting-edge and wide open, has never lost its excitement for us. Black Movie is a gamble, offering real visibility to auteur cinema that may be in the minority yet is ever excellent. Cinema for film buffs, presented in a setting that carries off the tour de force of being at once popular and challenging.

Fifteen years for God's sake – 15 years that Black Movie has been busting a gut in its efforts to help us discover “another” cinema, one that doesn't (or scarcely) make(s) it into our European movie theaters. Fifteen years that, thanks to BM, Chinese, Haitian, Zimbabwean, Mexican, Estonian, Uruguayan, Filipino or Iranian directors have managed to acquire a small say in what qualifies as Art with a capital A. A small voice, to which Black Movie offers a megaphone. So that Europe may finally realize the exceptional contribution this different cinema makes.
From January 16 to 25, the Black Movie Festival returns to Geneva with a focus on the human body and its misadventures, including films from South Korea, Russia, China, Brazil, Ukraine and Japan as well as an animation strand. Geneva’s pioneering independent film festival will present 112 films, including 51 Swiss premieres and 12 European premieres, with as its guest of honour acclaimed chronicler of disaffected China Wang Bing.

Black Movie s'est fait le héraut du cinéma indépendant. Pour réaliser son projet fou, le festival a besoin d'une grande équipe de bénévoles.
