This paper conducts a survey about black cinema exhibitions and festivals in the Northeast region of Brazil and analyzes the ways of organizing these staffs as aquilombamento spaces, preserving places of meetings and (re)existence of black cinema, articulating this discussion to Beatriz Nascimento’s thought about the concept of quilombos. Hereupon, we also build a brief historical reflection about the social construction of the Northeast, presenting an initial study about the survival strategies that these African Brazilian people have been developing in the face of a historical absence of cultural public investment in the region. In this initial research it was possible to analyse data related to gender and race in leaders of these events, emergence period, means of financing, and which states they are located in. In just over six years, the Northeastern region already has 9 black cinema exhibitions and festivals, thus representing an important scenario for this segment in Brazil.
