The program has two special shows and six partner shows

O Film club of the Badesc Cultural Foundation, right in downtown Florianópolis, holds free movie sessions, from Tuesday to Friday, at 19pm. However, some special sessions occasionally take place on Saturdays, or at 17pm.

Some of the sessions are mediated and/or followed by debates that deepen the themes covered in the films.

Contemporary Italian Film Festival

One of the highlights of the February programming at the cineclube is the curatorship in partnership with Círculo Ítalo Brasileiro (CIB) and Foco em Cinema: the Mostra Mostra de Cinema Italiano Contemporâneo. There are five films that are distinct from each other, both thematically and stylistically, and that present the creative breadth of Italian cinema of the last decades, emerging from the Italian political-social instabilities. The films are shown on the 04th, 06th, 07th, 13th and 14th of February, always at 19pm. The sessions are mediated by Bruno Andrade (writer and editor of Revista Foco) and Silvio Saffaro (member of the CIB), both partners of the Foundation's film club.

Show Misfits from cineclube ART7

ART7's proposal for the February programming is to show feature films in which the protagonists suffer social dislocations and sociability difficulties - the "misfits". The exhibition sessions are every Wednesday in February at 19pm.

Africa in Cinema

With monthly screenings of cinematographic productions of African origin, together with debates, África no Cinema is one of the university extension activities promoted by the Laboratory of Studies in African History (LEHAf/UFSC). The project aims to promote the artistic and cultural wealth of the African continent through its cinematography, as well as to discuss the representations of Africa in cinema. The partnership with Fundação Cultural Badesc started in 2013 and has monthly meetings. For this edition, LEHAf has new institutional partnerships: the Aliança Francesa de Florianópolis and the Institut Français. The Africa no Cinema session in February is scheduled for the 11th, at 19pm, with the film "talking about trees" (talking about trees).
