Havana Glasgow Film Festival
Havana Glasgow Film Festival 2021 will run as a hybrid of live and online events from 16-21 November, packed with the usual high quality mix of thought-provoking Cuban films, Cuban culture, discussion, debate and music. Our seventh edition focuses on the resourcefulness and extraordinariness of Cuba during one of the toughest points in its history.
Highlights include a Friday dedicated to Cuba’s unique approach to sustainability and climate change, featuring shorts, documentaries and discussion. Our featured director this year is acclaimed filmmaker Arturo Sotto, who will present four of his films live at the Festival, including the film noir Nido de Mantes / Mantis Nest. Rebecca Heidenberg, Director of Queens of the Revolution will join us for a live streamed Q&A on Sunday night to discuss her portrait of a cultural centre that paved the road for LGBTQ+ rights in Cuba.
Film Passes, costing £15 / £7.50 allow access to all our online films and events, with an additional cost of £0/£2/£4/£6/£8 for live events on a pay-what-you-can basis. You can also pay-per-film online at £5/film.
Look forward to seeing you there!
Eirene Houston, Festival Director
