Prizes for International Films
Number of Films Shown more than 530 films from 38 different countries
Media Coverage more than 100 national and international journalists
Evaluation In spite of the economic and political situation in Cuba the festival is a classic film event. Although the festival has its emphasis on Latin American films it can also be a good platform for European films. However, the lack of money does influence the quality of the program and causes organisational deficiency.
