Xinema was born in the district of Institut for (X) in Godsbanen: a platform created by local and international multicultural artists. It aims at promoting young cinematographers and strengthen the community of Aarhus by making an artistic cinematographic culturally rich space for active learning and discussions on social, economic, and environmental issues.

Xinema is a participatory cinema, as each of the movies shown are preceded and followed by interactive events and discussions. The event themes are flexible and can change every time as well as the location of the showing. Xinema also tries to be sustainable by using strategies as zero waste, not using plastic and recycling furniture. We believe in creating a community, where differences complement each other and everybody can connect and belong—thus a big emphasis on transcultural cinema!

Xinema takes place every month in Aarhus as a pop-up cinema event.
