No such drama occurred at HFFNY, where Cuban artists, actors and filmmakers won international recognition for their work.
Other noteworthy films screened at HFFNY include the internationally acclaimed Cuban horror flick "Juan de los Muertos" (see CubaNews, January 2012, page 15).
During HFFNY's closing session, "Juan de los Muertos" filmmaker Alejandro Brugues said his government takes Cuba's emerging film industry seriously--even when it comes to a Hollywood-friendly production like his.
Although one can get lost sifting through the assortment of Brazilian, Dominican, Colombian and Uruguayan movies HFFNY showed this year, there's no doubt Cuba remains the focus of this event.
HFFNY also conducted an awards ceremony (the Havana Star Prize) for filmmakers such as Miguel Coyula, who won Best Picture for his film "Memorias del Desarrollo," which deals with old age, alienation and facing exile in New York.
HFFNY also paid a special tribute to veteran Cuban director, musician and writer Enrique Pineda Barnet.
