SPECIAL CUBA DELEGATION: INSIDE CONTEMPORARY CUBAN FILM
January 14 – 22, 2016
The Americas Media Initiative (AMI) is organizing our first delegation to Cuba in collaboration with Anthropologie Consulting that will focus on current trends in contemporary Cuban filmmaking. The trip is geared towards film programmers and curators, professionals in the film business, academics and people interested in contemporary Cuban filmmaking and will provide insight and access normally unavailable to U.S. visitors.
An important focus of the delegation is to help clarify how the U.S. embargo still impacts Cuban filmmaking including the complex situation for Cuban independent filmmakers – who work outside of traditional Cuban cultural institutions – and their current legal status within Cuba. Alexandra Halkin, AMI Founding Director along with Jose Pineda, Director of Anthropologie Consulting will lead the delegation.
Due to the close working relationship AMI has with many filmmakers, delegates will meet one on one with documentary, and fiction filmmakers, and producers as well as animators and attend special screenings of their work. A unique aspect of the delegation will be meeting filmmakers living outside of Havana.
The delegation will accommodate 15 people so we encourage people to sign up early. All events and films will have English translation.
