Cineastas en Acción was born with the desire of the founders of offering a vision of the African Continent different to the one that can obtain the media. Part of the idea is that the African cultural, traditional, social and human wealth is partially unknown in occident, where hardly exists the idea, in some cases stereotyped, of a continent only beset by famine, war and illnesses.
With its activities, Cineastas en Acción pretends to give the opportunity to the African themselves of showing, through images, their differentied reality, their point of view. Cineastas en Acción pretends:
Boost education and sensibilization proyects towards human rights, environment respect and gender equality in developing countries through plastic arts and audiovisuals.

Boost the creation of new job posts.
Improve the life conditions of the most disadvantaged collectives, making special stress upon kids.
Support other ONG that have similar objectives.
Create an international community of filmmakers and artists from different disciplines, committed to cooperation towards development and solidarity.
