Between 1989 and 1995, the Casa de Cinema de Porto Alegre offered training courses in the audiovisual field: two editions of the course "Introduction to Filmmaking", both in partnership with the Pró-Reitoria de Extensão da
UFRGS (Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul Extra-Mural Department); and a specific scriptwriting course, "Imagens no papel" (Images on paper), held at Escola Leonardo da Vinci.

In 1996, the Casa de Cinema de Porto Alegre joined the Porto Alegre City Council Department of Culture and SESC to hold the International Conference "O Cinema do Fim ao Começo" (Cinema from End to Beginning), which brought the Italian filmmaker Ettore Scola to Porto Alegre.
However, the only event promoted regularly by Casa de Cinema since its foundation, in 1987, is the traditional End of Year Party of the Casa, which is already part of the cultural agenda of Porto Alegre.
