The 25th graduation ceremony of the Escuela Internacional de Cine y Televisión (EICTV) in San Antonio de Los Baños (Cuba), supported since 2015 by the Foundation, took place on July 22, 2017.

Mr. Francisco A. Diaz Lison represented the Foundation during the celebrations held in the presence of the Cuban Vice Minister of Culture, Mr. Fernando Rojas and Ms. Alquimia Peña, Director of the Fundación Del Nuevo Cine Latinoamericano, the organisation behind the inception of the prestigious institution.

The Foundation's support and presence alongside the film school make it possible to consolidate links around the values the Foundation shares with the cuban university: the primordial role that culture occupies in our societies and the place of cinema in our lives.

At the beginning of the upcoming academic year, the Foundation will grant scholarships to 8 students from Latin American countries.
