About the Universidad del CineEdit

Since its creation, Universidad del Cine proposed to itself three ambitious goals: to generate a space of creation which could make easier the appearance and realization of new projects; to give hierarchy to cinematographic education, inserting it in the framework of an integral and humanistic education; and become into a production center to deepen its educational action and make possible the insertion of its students in the professional field. Established in San Telmo, the historical quarter of Buenos Aires, we spread, from our beginning, a constant activity that gave urge to the Argentinean cinema.
