An initiative of the United Nations Information Service, Ciné ONU Geneva organizes regular film screenings on priority issues followed by discussions with panellists from the United Nations and other entities such as NGOs, academic institutions, permanent missions or film producers.

The aim is to raise awareness of UN priorities and activities among local audiences and to strengthen the profile of International Geneva. Film screenings in Geneva are organized regularly at Cinema Cinérama Empire (rue de Carouge 72-74), often in partnership with other UN agencies, permanent missions or other partners. In 2019, Ciné ONU Geneva is pleased to rely on the support of the Centre d’accueil de la Genève internationale (CAGI).

Ciné ONU was originally launched by the United Nations Regional Information Centre in Brussels in 2007. Since then, screenings are regularly organized in New York, Lisbon, London, Vienna and other cities. In Geneva, Ciné ONU was launched in 2014.
