Havana Glasgow Film Festival

Celebrating Cuban film and culture in Havana’s twin city of Glasgow

Our seventh edition focuses on the resourcefulness and extraordinariness of Cuba during one of the toughest points in its history in a hybrid Festival of online and live screenings.

Highlights include a Friday evening programme of films and discussion relating to Cuba’s unique approach to sustainability. 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. Our featured director this year is acclaimed filmmaker Arturo Sotto and we will screen four of his films including the film noir Nido de Mantes / Mantis Nest.

Online Festival Passes, costing £15 / £7.50 allow access to all our online films, with an additional cost of £0/£2/£4/£6/£8 for live events at CCA on a pay-what-you-can basis.
