The 12th International Low-Budget Film Festival of Gibara, to be held on Apri. 20-24, will follow the same spirit of its founder, late Cuban filmmaker Humberto Solas, the organizers announced.
The current president of the event, actor Jorge Perugorria, said that he now wants to recover the essence sowed by Solas in this festival, that was to create a space where the works of young filmmakers and artists could be seen.
Another Sola’s wish was to promote the auteur cinema, or low budget, quality films, noted Perugorria.
The event will not only be devoted to cinema, but it is also expected to become an interactive project, and we want to maintain that idea that turned the festival into one of the most important in Cuba, he added.
