“Women Cohiba & Habanos”, Winner of the Video Contest


This screenwriter and moviemaker entered the competition with a tribute of her own to the Cohiba brand, the highest Habano expression and this year came up with the Cohiba Pirámides Extra, the first figurado for the brand’s permanent range.

In a brief interview with this newspaper, Niurka Perez said her documentary film pays tribute to the school of female cigar rollers that eventually became the El Laguito factory, the birthplace of Cohiba, and to those women who for so many years have been behind the making of this renowned and celebrated Habano.

For next year’s festival, the Habanos in Images contest will target photography.
