Cuba's digital destination
The competition part of the event is directed at young Cuban filmmakers under 35 who will compete for prizes in the categories of feature film, documentary, animation, music and poster.
La sección Haciendo Cine convoca a guionistas y directores cubanos de hasta 35 años, a la presentación de proyectos de guiones de ficción y animación con un esquema de financiamiento de bajo presupuesto, para que mediante un pitching se encuentren con entidades que apoyan la producción audiovisual y acuerden la posible materialización de filmes. En la clausura se darán a conocer los proyectos que sean de interés para las entidades y productoras participantes.
The event encourages spreading knowledge about and reflecting on audiovisual creations by new film-makers. Some daring and controversial work is exhibited; almost always work that has been produced on the fringes of official institutions. The competition covers fiction, animated and documentary films, unpublished scripts, posters by young Cuban artists, international contemporary film screenings, theoretical encounters, debates, seminars and workshops with significant filmmakers.
The event includes three different sections apart from the competition: La Mirada del Otro, which will screen feature films, documentaries and animated films about Cuban themes by filmmakers from abroad, also under 35; Muestra Internacional, a sample of selected foreign films; and Muestra ICAIC, which screens films from the archives of the Cuban Film Institute.
The event also includes theoretical meetings, discussions, seminaries and workshops with important Cuban filmmakers, critics and authors; master classes by outstanding filmmakers regarding some of their films; and photographic, poster and visual arts exhibitions.
