International Film and Television School Celebration
On November 6th the Bloomsbury Theatre in association with the UCL Department of Spanish and Latin American Studies is hosting A Celebration Of The 20th Anniversary Of San Antonio De Los Baños International Film And Television School Founded By Gabriel García Márquez.
The San Antonio de los Baños International Film and Television School (Escuela Internacional de Cine y Televisión) was founded by the Nobel Prize-winner Gabriel García Márquez in Cuba on 15 December 1986 to offer budding film directors from all over the world the chance to learn how to make films. As its present director, Julio García Espinosa, creator of the concept of “imperfect cinema” in the 1960s which radically changed the history of filmmaking around the world, has pointed out, “a country without images is a country which doesn’t exist”, and the school soon proved itself as able to offer access to new tools and a new vision which fundamentally revolutionised the hegemonic Hollywood style. This summer UCL organised a very successful documentary workshop at the EICTV, and this event is intended to commemorate that link, as well as showcase the achievements of past graduates of the school. The event will consist of film screenings, followed by analysis, and will conclude with a roundtable discussion on future directions in contemporary world cinema.
