The “Paulo Emílio” University of São Paulo Cinema (Cinusp), an organ of the USP Pro-Rectorate for Culture and University Extension, is a cinema that organizes film exhibitions, debates, premieres, and other activities aimed at both the academic community and society.

Cinusp’s film exhibitions, with free admission, are held at the University City in the Camargo Guarnier cultural complex and in the room located in “favo 04,” besides programming offered at the MariAntonia Center of USP. The curation is carried out by the university’s team of professors and students, as well as in partnership with important festivals and other cultural institutions.


Cinusp is a space for investigation and education, where research for the exhibitions goes beyond the university walls, either through the material provided in the brochures announcing its programming or through books published as part of the Cinusp Collection. The schedule and information about exhibitions, debates, and interviews with filmmakers, conducted by the Cinusp team, can be found on the website (www.usp.br/cinusp), the Facebook page (fb.com/cinusp/), and Instagram (instagram.com/cinusp_/), serving as sources for future research.

In its screening room at the University City, CINUSP holds regular sessions from Monday to Friday at 4 and 7 p.m. The room located at the MariAntonia Center is open to the public on Fridays at 6 p.m., and on Saturdays and Sundays at 6 and 8 p.m. Seminars, courses, festivals, and events related to film and audiovisual activities also take place at CINUSP.
