An event for stimulating awareness and consideration of new video/filmmakers and getting into contact with daring and inquisitive works usually produced outside the official production. 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, poster and original script. The event includes two different sections apart from the competition: La Mirada del Otro, which will screen feature films, documentaries and animated films made in Cuba by students from abroad, also under 35; and Ventana Internacional, a sample of selected foreign films. The event also includes theoretical meetings, discussions, seminaries and workshops with important Cuban filmmakers.
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 The competition covers fiction, animated and documentary films, unpublished scripts, posters by young Cuban artists, international contemporary film screenings, theoretical encounters, debates, seminars and workshops with significant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.
