Two Stands about Cuban Cinema at the International Fair of Havana
This marked presence of ICAIC at the Cuban book feast is mainly because the Cuban film entity will be marking its 50th Anniversary this year, stated Ruiz. DVDs and film posters will be also for sale, including other articles related to the seventh art.

“Editions of books on or about cinema published in the last few years, especially those produced in 2008, will be displayed and for sale, pointed out Ruiz, who further mentioned that for such occasion all the editions of Cine Cubano (Cuban Cinema) magazine issued over the last three years will be available for interested readers.

There will be special presentations about the most recent titles by Ediciones ICAIC during the Fair, such as:
