Santa Clara, Cuba, May 10 (Prensa Latina) The head of the jury of the 10th 2024 Profilms Meeting, Mario Masvidal, praised the quality and mastery of the award-winning works on Friday in this city in central Cuba.

Ernesto Perez was the winner in the section of promotion in computer media, and Gelasio Dominguez in the same activity, but in television.

Pedro Mas received the award for print publications, and Rolando Rodriguez, president of the Cine Club Cubanacan, got the distinction for graphic promotion.

The philologist, critic and essayist Mario Masvidal considered the holding of those competitions to be of great importance, as most of the works presented were of high professional rigor and abundant creativity.

The event further featured talks on superhero cinema as a 21st century sub-genre and graphics in cartoons by the Cuban Institute of Cinematographic Art and Industry (ICAIC).
