The International Confederation of Art Cinemas (CICAE, from French Confédération Internationale des Cinémas d’Art et d’Essai) is an international non-profit association with address of record in Paris which tries to support and to promote art cinema. It is the only international art cinema organisation of its kind.

History[edit]

CICAE was founded in 1956 by the national art house cinema associations of Germany, France, the Netherlands and Switzerland as an international lobby or pressure-group in order to support the art cinema sector and to protect the cinematographic diversity against the supremacy of so-called commercial filmmaking.[1] Since then it unites about 3000 independent as well as already nationally associated art house cinemas, 15 festivals and a certain number of film distributors from approximately 30 countries from all over the world in an international umbrella association.[1] Detlef Rossmann, member of the German art house cinema association AG Kino - Gilde deutscher Filmkunstkinos e.V., officiates currently (2012) as CICAE's president.[2]

The Art Cinema Award is awarded twelve times a year to art house films at certain cooperating festivals such as the Directors' Fortnight[3] in Cannes, Panorama and Berlin International Film Festival[4] in Berlin and the Venice Film Festival.

The organisation also organizes training workshops for art house cinema executives and managers with the support of the EU MEDIA Programme.[5][6]
