CineMigrante is a film festival born in Buenos Aires in 2010 to create a cinematographic space that contributes to raise awareness on migration and to contrast mass media stereotyped approach to the topic. The aim is that of promoting intercultural dialogue and cultural integration all around the world, providing spaces for information and/or training on issues related to migration and rights. CineMigrante uses different tools and "languages” (films, documentaries, photography, urban performances, workshops, conferences, debates, masterclasses) and collaborates with institutions, universities, NGO, social movements, migrants’ organizations, etc. Since 2010 CineMigrante, has moved through countries such as Colombia, Ecuador, Portugal, Chile, Spain and Italy.

The festival in Canterbury, with the collaboration of Kent Law School and SoCriL Research Group, is structured along two days, 18th and 19th of October, with one inaugural workshop with all participants, four film screenings along the two days, one seminar with Enrica Rigo from Università Roma 3, Clinic of Migration and Citizenship Rights and one special screening with the participation of the director Sylvain George (to be confirmed).

The focus of this edition is on “the border". The inaugural workshop will be an occasion to debate migration and borders through different perspectives (academy, activism, cinema). Each film will consider one particular instance: Calais, Lampedusa, Melilla, Mexico. Before each screening, the context of each specific border will be introduced. The seminar with Enrica Rigo will provide a space to discuss how social activism in the practice of law can affect academic dynamics, starting from the Università Roma 3 experience. The Q&A with the director will allow students and members of the public to engage with a critical practice of cinematography.

Florencia Mazzadi, Director of CineMigrante, will introduce the festival, referring to the history/trajectory of CineMigrante since its birth in 2010 in Buenos Aires and addressing the changing condition and migration policies in the contemporary Argentina; Sylvain George will speak about his work and his experience in Calais; Enrica Rigo will illustrate her work with migrants at Università Roma 3 and the importance of a political commitment of law practice; Martina Bernabai will tell about her work as activist in Melilla. In the case Sylvain George could not confirm his presence, he would be replaced by the director Peter Schreiner, author of Lampedusa.
