Cinema House Tbilisi – The magic of the gem cinema

Do you want to see something special at the cinema and not another quick-buck banal Hollywood blockbuster? Well, Cinema House is just the place for you then.

Georgian Film Academy rents out the cinema hall (Cinema House), resulting in the exhibitions of such content that you won’t come across on any streaming platform on the internet, nor at any DVD store if DVDs are still alive. Embassies of different countries usually rent the hall to exhibit interesting and critically acclaimed movies from their countries (with English subtitles). Cinema House is also the host of the Annual International Animated Movies Festival. And the most fascinating part: entrance is, as normal, free.

I turned up at the cinema hall, conveniently, right when the animated movies festival was about to start and I had no idea what to expect from a free screening, but believe me or not, I left the hall in awe. These weren’t cartoons for children, the short animations handled such hard-core socio-economic, socio-psychological, and ecological issues, provoking long-lasting emotions in me. I was also able to attend a free training conducted by a Polish animator, who explained and showed in detail how much effort and work is put into animations.

In case you happen to be roaming around Rustaveli Avenue in the evening, take a good look at the poster outside Cinema House, you might catch something memorable.
