CIMCIH - International Conference of Hispanic Women Filmmakers

The International Conference of Hispanic Women Filmmakers (CIMCiH) intends to actively contribute to the body of scholarly work on Women Directors, specifically those whose films are conceived and conducted in Spanish. This conference serves as a platform where creators, authors, scholars and students can discuss their research, and ultimately promote their work, expanding the boundaries of this historically overlooked collective.

 The first edition of CIMCiH is entitled “Cartographies” as an invitation to map -literally and metaphorically- a wide range of women’s work behind the camera, as well as to reflect on the power of both real and cinematic spaces. The Conference aims to examine how cultural ideologies, identities and intersectionalities (such as race, gender or age) are depicted on the big screen through the analysis of cultural, emotional and physical atlases.
