Global CINEMATHEQUE celebrates international cinema and presents the World Cinema Awards; a new annual year-end awards list for films from around the world.

In February 2020, Global CINEMATHEQUE launched with the first World Cinema Awards; an event created to honor and spotlight the talent in productions produced outside of the United States in the official language of the producers and directors of the films.

International film festival and film museum directors, programmers, curators and US-based film journalists form the selection committee for the awards, bringing together two communities that are immersed in the global cinema landscape throughout the year.
