This program is in line with Dima Cinéma’s intervention logic, namely: the creation of a network of alternative screens as large as possible in order to allow the public to watch films on the big screen. But also the creation of a “human” network of cinema lovers who already carry, in an individual way, the same values of sharing.

Created by Dima Cinema and the Tunisian Federation of Film Clubs, “Cine Fabrika” is a capacity building program for Tunisian and Algerian film clubs. “Cine Fabrika” includes a total of 24 film clubs (12 Algerian and 12 Tunisian). A first session of capacity building was provided in Hamamet (Tunisia) in June 2019, and the second session took place in Timimoun (Algeria).

Cine Fabrika is supported by the Arab Network of Alternative Screens (NAAS).

“Doc.itinérance” en partenariat avec IDFA

Dima Cinema is currently preparing the Journées itinérantes du
Documentary initially scheduled from April 16 to 22 and postponed for health security reasons. The new dates will be communicated to the public at a later date.

In partnership with the Embassy of the Netherlands in Algeria, “Doc-Itinerance” is a cinematographic event that takes place over a week, in three regions and which relies on local cultural actors: Algiers, Tizi Ouzou (with the support of the cultural association “Axxam n-da Ali”), and Tipaza (with the support of the structure “Mass’Art” of Fouka).

This first edition will be marked by a focus on one of the largest documentary festivals in the world: International Documentary Film festival Amsterdam (IDFA).

The Festival aims to be a space for cinematographic discoveries, a time for encounters between the public, the works and the filmmakers. A space of sensitization to the image for young people, through the creation of workshops for young audiences. And above all, a privileged time to discover and marvel in different corners of the country.

The event is supported by the Dutch Embassy in Algeria.

Dima workshops

Image education

With the arrival of Smart Phone and small digital cameras, the current generation is the first to have such easy access to the production of images (photo, video …) and their dissemination via internal (Facebook. YouTube …).

The first to be exposed to this danger are “young people”, in high school or college, all young people today have a smart phone, they are connected to social networks, download movies via the web, watch videos, share them … without any measure of the dangers or preparation to the different dimensions that these can take.

In Algeria, as in many other countries, no image education system is set up in schools, nor outside of school hours, hence the importance, for Dima Cinéma, of setting up activities that will stimulate discussion around these new issues. Activity to come soon.

Movie Reviews

Film criticism is the way to reveal a work and bring it to life. The Dima Cinéma team is convinced of the need for the emergence of a new generation of film critics. To do so, it will organize “critic” workshops, intended for a non-professional public.

Articles, audio debates and video reviews will be presented to registered future critics to allow them to share their viewing experience and debate their thoughts on the films.

The call for participation will be published soon.
