The Havana Glasgow Film Festival
From the beating hearts of these Twin Cities
an international film festival celebrating the Human spirit
Local culture and local identity
With a focus on social, political and humanist films, HGFF's aim is to bring the best of Cuban cinema to Scotland, to give people not just the chance to see the films but to meet Cuban film makers, share ideas, hopes, dreams, rum, whisky, music, food, dance and art!
It is also to showcase Scottish films which deserve to be seen more often and also occasionally feature and show films from Glasgow's other Twin Cities.
It was set up in 2015 by Screen Writer/Film Maker, Eirene Houston, with the support of Glasgow City Council, to foster the link between Twin Cities Glasgow and Havana.
