From the 14th to 16th March 2012 at the Teatro Filarmónica of Oviedo
II Ciclo de Cine Africano. Del 14 al 16 de marzo de 2012 en el Teatro Filarmónica de Oviedo

The  El Pájaro Azul Foundation manages public and private funds oriented at fulfilling projects in developing countries that comply with the Foundation's aims, which are, among others, to encourage, promote and collaborate in all initiatives and projects that have as their aim to create suitable conditions for people's development. Its projects are mainly aimed at Sub Saharan Africa. They have worked with Benin, Angola and Cameroon, but the country they focus on is the Democratic Republic of Congo. The majority of its projects are there.

This foundation now organises the 2nd African Film Cycle, an exhibition to bring Africa's realities closer from the viewpoint of its protagonists. It will be held at the Teatro Filarmónica of Oviedo on 14th, 15th and 16th March 2012 at 20:00h. The entrance fee is 4 € and the takings will be entirely destined for the children's centre of "Bana ya Poveda" street in Kinshasa (Democratic Republic of Congo).

Two of the films that make up this cycle (Ramata and Yaaba) come to Oviedo in partnership with Cinenómada, sponsored by Casa África because it has the same objective as Al-Tarab of making African cinema visible to as many Spanish audiences as possible and of brining Africa closer to Spain.

Cinenómada makes available to various entities a large selection of films from past editions of the FCAT, subtitled in Spanish, which is to date the only offering of this dimension and genre that exists in Spain and that guarantees African producers an income, which although modest, is often the only one they receive.

It targets associations, municipalities, regional governments, universities, cultural centers, film libraries, museums and any type of organization or institution that is interested in promoting African cinema. Cinenómada distributes films throughout the year that would otherwise remain only in specialized festivals.
