15th Havana Film Festival New York
A passionate project of the nonprofit American Friends of the Ludwig Foundation of Cuba, the Havana Film Festival New York showcases respected and rising voices hailing from Latin-American communities. The foundation’s executive team, Carole Rosenberg, and film artistic director Diana Vargas helm a dedicated staff, who draw cinematic works from about a dozen Latin American and Caribbean countries as well as Latinos in the U.S.. Their collection of over 40 features, shorts, documentaries, and classic graces the screens of venues throughout the city, many for the very first time in the United States.
English subtitles assist non-native speakers in following the action, and postscreening Q&As afford audiences a behind-the-scenes glance at the global Latino film industry and direct interaction with visiting filmmakers. Panel discussions explore new cinematic innovations as well as alternative production and distribution means in evolving film industries such as Cuba’s. The festival annually pays tribute to influential actors and directors within the Latino film community.
