“IBERO was one of the first schools to agree to participate in this program during its first season and the fact that they return for the second, within the framework of its 40th anniversary, makes it especially relevant,” commented the commissioner who is part of the Directorate of Industries Creative.

After the exhibition, a q&a session was held with five female directors present and the public was invited to the next session of EMERGENTE BC, which will be with the students of Engineering in Digital Graphic Design of CETYS University on November 22, at 6:00 p.m. at Cineteca Tijuana.

Regarding his experience in the program of the State Cinematography Commission, Juan Manuel Ávalos González, coordinator of the Bachelor of Communication at IBERO, mentioned:

“The experience has been very good, it is a very valuable opportunity for students to project their work in an unbeatable space such as the Carlos Monsiváis Film Library. In addition, our student community has been strengthened by the meeting with graduates, where the projection of the most experimental pieces in the lobby was key. We are very happy because with these participations we are able to show the results of the work of our courses and extracurricular projects”.
