“European Cinema in U.S.” – A new section found in Cinema Without Borders- includes cinema-related news, festival reports, film reviews, and interviews. As ELMA leads other organizations in sponsoring European Cinema events in Los Angeles, CWB will extensively cover such events.
ELMA’s sponsorship of “NOW SHOWING: European Films in the U.S.” enables CWB to offer previously inaccessible information. Fans can now find out when European films will be shown in both Los Angeles and New York. Future plans include listing show times in other US cities. Information about European film releases on both DVD and VOD format is also available.
Cinema Without Borders is planning to extend the “NOW SHOWING.” section to eventually cover show times for all international films played in U.S.
Bijan Tehrani, Editor in Chief of Cinema Without Borders, comments that, “Working with ELMA provides Cinema Without Borders an opportunity to promote European cinema and related events in the United States. As their numbers grow, international cinema will have a stronger presence among American audiences.”
Pascal Ladreyt, ELMA’s Executive Director, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership. “With its insightful commentaries, Cinema Without Borders enables greater appreciation for a variety of worldviews.” He said. “We are excited to support CWB in creating a new section on European cinema.”
ELMA is a Santa Monica based nonprofit organization dedicated to showcasing European movies. ELMA’s mission is to create new avenues for a better cultural understanding between the people of Europe and the U.S. by celebrating alternative cinema.
