After a year and a half of social distancing and online entertainment, the Havana Film Festival New York (HFFNY) is returning to in-person events at the Village East Cinema (181-189 2nd Ave, NYC) November 5-11, 2021

In its 21st edition, the festival will showcase films from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Guatemala, Mexico, Peru, Puerto Rico, Spain, and the U.S, offering a cinematic window into the multiple perspectives that make up the Latin American diaspora and fostering an environment for industry professionals, film lovers, and Latinos to enrich and expand their vision of Latino culture. Filmmakers will join us in-person to introduce audiences to their stories, interpretations, and approaches to the art of making movies. We are partnering with small, independently-owned bars, restaurants, and gallery spaces in the neighborhood to join us in celebrating Latin American stories and the region’s cultural presence in NYC. Two major focuses of this year’s festival are diversity and community, and a clear message to our audience to support local business.

HFFNY continues to uphold the reputation for which it is known: enriching and expanding the vision of Cuban and Latino culture in the United States. The films chosen each year reflect strong cultural and social identities rooted in their respective countries. The festival offers our audience the opportunity to see award-winning full-length feature films, documentaries, shorts, animation, and classics as well as new independent films rarely screened in the U.S.
