Cinemaximiliaan grew out of a volunteering initiative, and its spirit is very much based on the positive energy with which every individual contributes its part to the project. Cinemaximiliaan is an associative and dynamic organisation, and so are the people involved in the project. Everybody is welcome to join at any point. It’s never too late!
