The International School of Film and Television (EICTV) in San Antonio de los Baños - about an hour outside La Habana, Cuba - is widely respected as one of the world’s great film schools. What sets it apart is the vision of its founders – Colombian Nobel Laureate Gabriel García Márquez, Argentinean filmmaker and poet Fernando Birri and Cuban filmmaker Julio García Espinoza. From the beginning, in December 1986, they wanted to create a "school of three worlds" (a play on “third world”) for students from Latin America, Africa and Asia.  Since then, several thousand students and professionals have passed through the school and it has become a truly international institution, better described as "school of all worlds.” Everyone who passes through the school in its beautiful tropical environment cannot help but be touched by the spirit and creative inspiration of the place. Most students from every generation describe their time there as a life changing experience.
