Go Cuba! supports 8 new film projects

Yesterday (14 June), World Cinema Amsterdam, the film festival dedicated to world cinema, announced in Havana which Cuban filmmakers will receive financial support as part of the GO CUBA! project that was kicked off in 2015. For the second round, for the group of 2016, eight film projects have been selected: documentaries, shorts and feature films.


Filmmaker Fabin Surez visited Amsterdam last year during the 6th edition of World Cinema Amsterdam to present his impressive debut film Caballos. The film has recently (April 11, 2016) been awarded as Best Fiction at the 15th edition of Muestra Joven ICAIC in Cuba.
