Sundance Returning to Cuba with Film Forward Program

Sundance Returning to Cuba with Film Forward Program

The Sundance Institute is headed to the island of Cuba this week, inviting students, artists, and film lovers to attend screenings and Q&A sessions to acclaimed independent films. Discussions are open to the public as part of Sundance Film Forward starting on July 14-16.

Sundance will screen “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” with novelist/screenwriter Jesse Andrews and “Meru” with director Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi at venues across Havana. These events are part of the Institute’s ongoing programs in Cuba that started back in 1989. Late last year the Institute visited Cuba to present a suite of programs in screenwriting, producing, film music, and documentary editing, in a new partnership with the International Festival of New Latin American Cinema and La Escuela Internacional De Cine Y TV (EICTV).

Sundance Film Festival touring program is designed for students and artist 18-24 years of age to excite and cultivate new audiences for independent film and enhance awareness of shared stories across borders.
