Geba Filmes is a non-profit cooperative that was conceived with the intention of promoting sustainable cultural activities with moving image, video, cinema and performing arts in Guinea-Bissau. The Geba Filmes program aims to stimulate the development of social, educational and environmental potential for artistic and audiovisual productions in the area and to support projects to promote artistic and audiovisual literacy. Two of the founding members of Geba Filmes, the filmmakers Sana na N'Hada and Flora Gomes, are pioneers of moving image in Guinea-Bissau and also founded INCA - The National Institute for Film and Audiovisual Media in 1978. Since its formation in 2007, Geba Filmes has co-produced dozens of moving image projects. Between 2011 and 2013 Geba Filmes was the main partner of Arsenal - Institute for Film and Video Art, Berlin, in the project Luta ca caba inda to digitize the Guinean cinema archive that documents the historical process of the struggle of liberation against Portuguese colonial occupation.
