It is located in San Antonio de Los Baños, Artemisa Province, Cuba.

The school provides a comprehensive theoretical and practical cinema education, within a completely self-sufficient environment and community for its students, faculty members, workers and staff.[1][2][3] Each year around 40 students from Latin America, Africa, Asia and Europe are selected to complete the Curso Regular (Regular Course). During this intensive three-year period, each student specialises in one of the following disciplines: Documentary Direction, Fiction Direction, Sound, TV & New Media, and Screenwriting.[4] Along with the Curso Regular, the EICTV also offers international workshops.
