This spring, Global CINEMATHEQUE brings a curated series of new global cinema from the past year to FILM at LACMA. The series is a showcase of singular voices, emerging and master auteurs, and award-winning filmmakers with official selections that first premiered at film festivals around the world; in Berlin, Cannes, Locarno, Rotterdam and Toronto. Each screening will be followed by a conversation between the filmmakers and Global CINEMATHEQUE’s Co-Founder and Curator Jasmine Jaisinghani.
All but two of the winning and runner-up film titles from this year’s awards honoring the films of 2019 can now be viewed online in the U.S. through streaming services and virtual cinemas. You will find the full list of winners and runners-up HERE and links to where and how to watch everything below.
The goal of this new list from Global Cinematheque is to give more exposure to the extraordinary international talent working on each of these films. So, we hope that this list is a starting point that leads you to watch these films for the first, second or third time, and that it inspires you to dig deeper into the filmography of each of these brilliant artists to catch up on the films of theirs that you still haven’t seen.
