It was with the great room of the legendary Cinema São Jorge full that we ended the academic year 2016/2017 in a party spirit. We once again have several reasons to celebrate but we highlight the excellent work of our students and the excellent results of the various national and international cooperation projects we coordinate and continue to show us that we are still on the right track. Another of the highlights of this celebration is the awards to students, some of them attributed by the industry and relevant organizations of the audiovisual panorama.
Thanks to everyone who made this school year a real success, see you next year.
