2017 cuba glasgow film festival

The third Havana Glasgow Film Festival is almost here! For an extended weekend at the beginning of November (9-12 Nov) Glasgow plays host to filmmakers and stars from its twin city, Havana. The festival showcases the incredibly vibrant film scene in Cuba and is bringing a number of Cuban stars over to discuss their films and life in Cuba. Luis Alberto Garcia – acclaimed Cuban actor will be here to discuss two of his films – Ya no es Antes, about a couple who meet again after years of separation by emigration, - and  - Clandestinos, a romance set against the last days of the struggle against Batista.  Director Jonal Coscuella will be here to discuss the premiere of his film, Esteban, about a 10-year-old’s struggle to achieve his dream to play the piano. And we are thrilled to welcome Che Guevara’s daughter, Aleida Guevara March, who will be with us to discuss two documentaries one on her father and one on his compadre Fidel. Visit http://www.hgfilmfest.com/programme - for more details and to get tickets.

The Havana Glasgow Film Festival exists to showcase Cuban cinema and culture within Havana’s twin city of Glasgow, Scotland. The festival celebrates local identities and cultures, highlighting the similarities between Havana and Glasgow and the thriving artistic talent that exists within both cities.

It provides a platform for Cuban and Scottish film-makers to share their work with international audiences through a week-long programme of screenings, workshops and panel discussions. A vibrant evening event schedule runs in tandem with the festival, complementing its film content with celebrations of Cuban music, dancing, food and rum. The Havana Glasgow Film Festival brings the rich, distant culture of Cuba onto Scotland’s doorstep and highlights the social, political and human similarities within these twinned cities.
