Scholarship Agreement with International Film and Television School in Cuba

Escuela Internacional de Cine y Televisión (EICTV) – San Antonio de Los Baños

In 2016 a partnership was formed with the Escuela Internacional de Cine y Televisión (EICTV) to establish scholarships for students in need of funding.

Established in 1986, the EICTV is a project under the hospices of the Foundation for New Latin American Cinema, based in Cuba.

The Escuela Internacional de Cine y TV (EICTV) of Cuba is an autonomous training school providing a creative nurturing environment for students attracted from over 55 countries. The school was founded in 1986 by a group of prominent intellectuals of the Latin American world : Columbian author Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Argentinean poet Fernando Birri and Cuban filmmaker Julio Garcia Espinosa.
Its initial aim was to support the development of national audio-visual industries in countries that lacked the infrastructures or resources to train their own professionals by providing free tuition. However, economic hardships imposed a fee-paying structure for non-Cuban students from 2006.

Today, 120 students from 50 countries follow a 3-year full-time course with specialisations in screenwriting, production, directing, photography, sound, editing and documentaries.

The school attracts international professional filmmakers as visiting professors of workshops and masterclasses.
