Fifty Years of Cine Cubano Magazine

The 176th edition of the Cine Cubano (Cuban Cinema) magazine, dedicated to the 50th anniversary of its creation, was launched at the ‘Fresa y Chocolate’ cultural Center in Havana.

Omar Gonzalez, president of the Cuban Film Institute (ICAIC), said during the ceremony that Cine Cubano has always had a national reach that goes beyond ICAIC and filmmakers.

He expressed his satisfaction with the high quality of the publication which, he noted, is one of the oldest of its type in the world.

During the event, tribute was paid to founders and intellectuals, who have contributed with their works to the magazine’s pages along the past 50 years, such as Julio García Espinosa, Jose Massip, Tomas Gutierrez Alea, Alfredo Guevara, Luis Rogelio Nogueras, Gloria Villazon and Hector Garcia Mesa.

The new edition of the magazine includes a dossier on the movie ‘Jose Marti: el ojo del canario’ by Fernando Perez, which includes texts by outstanding intellectuals such as Fina Garcia Marruz and Fernando Martinez Heredia.

In addition, there are articles by Victor Fowler, Ambrosio Fornet and Francisco López Sacha. It also includes a dossier on the significance of the magazine and the work of its creators over the past 50 years.
