" Industrial engineer, professor and film producer. He was one of the founders of the Institute for Film Research and Experiences.

He was born in Mondoñedo (Lugo) in 1910 and studied Industrial Engineering in Bilbao. His passion for film and his technical studies on the subject led him to promote a series of initiatives at the Industrial Engineering School in Madrid, which turned this centre into a benchmark for film teaching and study. Coinciding with his leadership of the Film Regulatory Subcommittee, and with the support of the group of friends who met at the “la Elipa” bar in Madrid, in 1947 they created the Institute for Film Research and Experiences, with López García being appointed its first director. At the same time he founded and edited the magazine “Cine Experimental”. He held various positions, always related to film, and continued to teach and research. He died in Madrid in 1995.
