Havana Film Festival - Mission

The Havana Film Festival New York (HFFNY) collaborates with Havana’s International Festival of New Latin American Cinema to introduce its audience to prominent and emerging filmmakers by showcasing the latest award-winning films and classics from and about Latin America, the Caribbean and the U.S. Latino community. HFFNY seeks to cultivate audience-artist dialogue through panel discussions designed to give a behind-the-scenes look at an industry that continues to gain global recognition. The festival program offers directors, actors and producers an opportunity to exchange ideas, enriches and expands the vision of Latino culture and provides a multi-cultural experience for a diverse audience.

The Havana Film Festival New York is a project of the American Friends of the Ludwig Foundation of Cuba, a non-profit 501 (c)(3) cultural organization fostering the exchange of artistic ideas and information between the U.S. and Cuba to strengthen social consciousness and cultural awareness.
