Physical Description: ca. 60 linear ft. (34 record containers, 1 flat box, 3 cartons of posters, map folders).
Press clippings, film posters, festival programs, newsletters, grant applications and financial records document more than 20 years of one of the oldest community-based Latino arts organizations in the United States.
Cine Acción began in 1980 in San Francisco as a community based organization. Its main focus was to provide a venue for independent films by and about Latinos in the United States. Festival Cine Latino was one of the first Latino film festivals in the United States at a time when there were very few such events. Over the years the organization grew to include features from Latin America and Spain, always with a focus on independent voices. In addition to the film festival, Cine Acción also produced a monthly bulletin and a quarterly newsletter addressing Chicano and Latino cultural identity, politics, and film criticism. It ceased to exist as an active organization in 2005.
