Cinehassee streams a series of films from Hispanic countries, as well as those that address topics related to the Hispanic culture. The main goal of the Festival is to provide multiple viewpoints, inform, discuss, address complex social issues, strengthen ties between our diverse community, and raise awareness on issues concerning the characteristics, importance, and impact of the Hispanic people and their idiosyncrasies.
HiGSA is an organization composed mainly, but not exclusively, of Hispanic graduate students. It welcomes anybody that is interested in learning about Hispanic culture or practicing Spanish. Part of HiGSA’s mission is to promote their culture at Florida State University and Tallahassee, and to generate awareness of social and political issues in Iberoamerican countries and their relationship with the USA. Films are a very effective mean of achieving these ends. For this reason, the organization has made an effort to screen films from different countries and different topics related to its mission. We believe that diversity is valuable in any democratic society, and Cinehassee contributes to foster this value by exposing the FSU and Tallahassee community to topics, problems, ideas and realities that are different from those experienced in the city’s day to day.
