The "Universidad del Cine" is hidden away on Pasaje Guiffra. It is a private national university that was founded in 1991 by Manuel Antin, a film director. This research and learning center is attended by young people who are interested in audiovisual arts and it is also a center for the production of long and short films. In order to promote the works created by film students all over the world, the "Universidad del Cine" runs an International Film School Festival every two years. For one week this festival projects young, creative films and organizes workshops, conferences and exhibits to bring the essence of the world of film to Buenos Aires. It also offers film series continuously.
