This week: Cuban-American Film Festival


Looking for something to do as we slip toward summer with warm evenings? Head on over to Casa Bacardi and enjoy these fine films.

The Institute for Cuban and Cuban-American Studies Film Festival seeks to highlight the experiences of Cuban exiles and members of the Cuban-American community.
Specifically, the festival captures the unique events of these individuals via the medium of filmmaking. Ultimately, its purpose is to promote the inherent creativity of those willing to share their works and to recognize the accomplishments and difficulties of those living in or influenced by the Cuban Diaspora.
