The Academy of Cinematographic Arts and Sciences of Spain (Spanish: Academia de las Artes y las Ciencias Cinematográficas de España) is a Spanish professional organisation dedicated to the promotion and development of Spanish cinema. Founded in 1986, it is responsible for the annual Goya Awards, Spain's principal film awards.
