CICAE Grows and Sets Course for the Future with Newly-Elected Board and General Delegate


CICAE Board of Directors gathered in Cannes (from left to right)
First row: Domenico Dinoia (FICE, Italy), Marlena Gabryszewska (Stowarzyszenie Kin Studyjnych, Poland) Detlef Rossmann (Casablanca-Kino, Germany), Christian Bräuer (AG Kino – Gilde, Germany), Guillaume Bachy (AFCAE, France), Tibor Bíró (CineFest Miskolc, Hungary).

The International Confederation of Arthouse Cinemas (CICAE) has elected a new Board of Directors and Executive Board (Bureau) during its annual general assembly on 17 May 2023 in Cannes. The Board’s composition (see below) reflects the association’s commitment to representing expanding membership and global scope by increasing diversity, youth, and gender balance among its leadership. Accordingly, the Executive Board comprises four women and four men. The elected portion of the Board of Directors consists of six women and five men.
Furthermore, the CICAE is proud to welcome several new members from across the world, including the Thessaloniki International Film Festival, the Polish Arthouse Cinema Network Stowarzyszenie Kin Studyjnych, whose 241 member cinemas make it the world’s fourth-largest association of its kind, and arthouse theatre networks from Chile and Venezuela.
Christian Bräuer re-elected as President

Mr. Christian Bräuer, managing director of the Berlin-based Yorck-Kinogruppe and Chairman of the German Arthouse Association, was re-elected as CICAE president.

While audiences worldwide are returning to their local arthouse cinemas, unprecedented uncertainties such as market shifts, social changes, and the climate crisis, as well as the aftermath of the pandemic, still mark the sector.

Regulation is the key to preserving creative independence and diversity

Meanwhile, political actors and funding bodies have been slow to develop a comprehensive approach to face current challenges, says Christian Bräuer:


“The return of Arthouse-audiences worldwide shows the continued crucial importance of independent screens. While we have proven resilient in times of crisis and remain determined to defend the diversity of film and provide safe spaces for audiences’ engagement with arthouse film, the situation remains fragile. Unprecedented economic, social, and political insecurities require policymakers across the world and on all levels to support arthouse cinemas with targeted funding and equitable regulations that will ensure their independence.” 

The CICAE Board emphasises diversity, sustainability, and solidarity and calls for collaboration beyond the national horizon
The newly elected Board highlights the importance of increased international cooperation within the arthouse movement to meet common challenges such as the climate crisis or global market concentration.
The Board calls for comprehensive political efforts to support the sector
For the CICAE, arthouse cinemas are vital to the health of the international film ecosystem. Respecting the principles of territoriality and equitable regulations (e.g., concerning film access and theatrical release windows) serves the entire industry. Moreover, a thriving Arthouse cinema sector allows audiences worldwide to benefit from a culturally diverse, locally relevant, and artistically valuable film landscape. Christian Bräuer:
Today, community-based, mission-driven Arthouse cinema is more important than ever. Cinemas are spaces of discourse and encounter. In times of seemingly limitless choice online, of social alienation and global division, independent cinemas provide a link between local communities and open a window to artistic landscapes from across the world. Where arthouse cinemas thrive, local communities flourish.
The Board affirms CICAE’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. It maintains its support of a vibrant, multilateral democratic society and calls for ensuring the freedom and safety of film- and cinema professionals worldwide. In this spirit, the CICAE Board reaffirms its continued solidarity with Ukraine as it faces Russian aggression.
