cinéSPEAK is a Philadelphia-based organization that engages diverse audiences through their independent, repertory + foreign film programming; creating space + centering the stories of individuals and communities that are often underrepresented in mainstream cinema.

Using cinema as a gathering tool to spark dialogue and new relationships amongst neighbors, cinéSPEAK connects individuals with change-maker organizations and institutions while emboldening community members to be keepers and tellers of their own stories. Programming is enlightening and entertaining while being advocacy-driven and community-centered.

Every second Thursday of the month, cinéSPEAK presents a wide array of films at The Rotunda, curated by filmmakers and presenters from all around the city. Screenings always begin at 8pm and are always FREE!
