8th Festival of Poor Cinema Returns to Gibara

The city of Gibara, Holguin, will be once again the venue for the International Festival of Poor Cinema, in its eighth celebration; an encounter that promotes audiovisual materials made with little economic resources, but with an elevated aesthetic level that defends the originality.

Between April 19-25 film directors from over the world will be reunited there, a sample of the interest of keeping a space of artistic creation that doesn’t depend on the large commercial circuits and that always makes a bet for what’s authentic and against the grain of the current globalizing tendencies in the culture.

Besides the fiction, documentary film, experimental cinema, and video-art competition, the event awards Scale Projects and Unpublished Scripts for Feature films, includes theoretical forums and homage activities.

The Poor Cinema Festival was born off the hand of the teacher of celluloid in Cuba, Humberto Solas (1941 – 2008) who has become the spirit of this reunion and was always a committed artist to encourage the development of art.
