Cincinnati World Cinema stands in solidarity with black and brown artists and community members in the ongoing fight against racial violence, racism, and discrimination of all types.


    The CWC mission has been to celebrate cultural diversity and explore the human condition through the cinematic arts. Our programming choices over almost twenty years demonstrate that inclusivity is a major contributor to our success. Yet these precepts will ring hollow if we, as curators, and you, our constituents, fail to contend with issues that rend our societal fabric.
    As much a pandemic as Covid-19, the deep systemic racism in this nation must not be tolerated. We believe that thinking, caring people cannot be passive and feel we all have an obligation to make this nation better as best we can. We must convert anger and pain to a positive, healing purpose.

Do you hear the people sing? Singing a song of angry men?
It is the music of a people who will not be slaves again!
Do you hear the people sing? Do you hear the distant drums?
It is the future that we bring when tomorrow comes!

~ Les Misérables, The Musical
