The 2020 Internacional Festival de Cine Gibara, Cuba

Film - Culture - Photography

July 4 - 11, 2020

The festival begins with a parade of hundreds of children, performers, townspeople, artists and affiliates down the hill of the main street supporting a giant flag. You can be a bystander or join the throng of marchers! For one week, you have the opportunity to view a large variety of independent films in many categories, classic films, theater events, nightly concerts and to participate in artist receptions exhibitions. Meet and discuss important issues in film and art with filmmakers, artists and local community-based groups.


I had the fantastic experience of being a participating artist in the 2018 Festival. My photographs hung in the local cigar factory converted temporarily into an art gallery. The support of not only the visiting artists but local Gibarneros found a place in my heart for this event and the town.


I would love to share this with you for one week in July 2020. We have secured rooms in the Hotel Ordono, the finest in town. All of your meals and transportation needs will be arranged. This leaves you free to enjoy the immersion into the art, culture and excitement of your days in Gibara.
