World Cinema Specials: GO CUBA!
Cuba is abundant with film talent, but the resources for film production are very limited. Therefore World Cinema Amsterdam began a collaboration with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 2015 on a project called GO CUBA!
This initiative acts as a fund where Cuban filmmakers find extra support in order to complete their film projects. Every year (2015 – 2017), up to five shorts and two feature films receive the financial aid of GO CUBA! with a maximum of € 2.500 per selected short film project and € 10.000 for the feature film projects.
World Cinema Amsterdam will show the results of the project of the second round through the screening of five shorts and two films, all belonging to the first and second generation of Cuban projects that were supported by the fund in December 2015 and 2016.
In 2017 Go Cuba! took place on August 25th and 26th. Julia Gonzalo was present to capture the highlights of the event.
