5th annual Minnesota Cuban Film Festival
St. Anthony Main Theatre
Six Thursdays, February 20 - March 27, 2014

The 5th Annual Minnesota Cuban Film Festival will once again present a selection of the best new and vintage Cuban cinema. As with last year's festival, we are working with ICAIC (Instituto Cubano de Arte e Industria Cinematográficos), the Cuban Film Institute, and partnering with the Film Society of Minneapolis/St. Paul. This year the theme is Women and Afro Cubans in Cuban Cinema, ranging from hard-to-find vintage documentaries to the most recent full-length feature films. The festival is dedicated to the continuing fight for the release of the Cuban 5. All the films will feature Afro-Cuban/women directors and actors or Afro-Cuban/women characters as the main protagonists. This is in tribute to the role the Cuban Revolution played in elevating the role of women in Cuban society, industry and government and the ongoing struggle for racial equality. And as in previous years, the films will be followed by discussions at the adjoining Pracna on Main and a closing night party.
 
We would also like to ask you to consider joining with the film festival as a supporter or sponsor so that we can continue bringing Cuban cinema to Minnesota. Depending on the level of sponsorship we achieve, we are hoping to be able to host a visit by a Cuban filmmaker. In addition, this year the festival will be absorbing a larger theater rental fee rental because St. Anthony Main Theater is increasing the rental costs from what they were last year. We are hoping to keep ticket prices the same as last year, but that again will partially depend on our sponsors.
