Havana.- Cuban specialists are organizing the XV edition of the International Film Festival of Gibara, based in the east of the island.
The organizers have already launched the corresponding call to add all the film and audiovisual production of the country to compete in the different sections of the forum.
Some of the categories are fiction-feature film, documentary short film, unpublished screenplays and film in construction (fiction and documentary films).
In that last section, the Humberto Solás Prize will be awarded to the work that most honors the Poor Cinema Manifesto, defended by the renowned filmmaker and director of important Cuban films such as Lucía (1968), Cecilia (1981) and Un hombre de éxito (1986).
Relevant national and international figures of cinema and culture in general will be part of the jury that will award a Lucia Award in each competitive category.
