Since 2010, the Minnesota Cuba Film Festival (MCFF) has brought to the Land of 10,000 Lakes some of the best Cuban films. This year’s festival will take place at MSP Film at the Main Theater six consecutive Wednesdays, March 1-April 5, 2023.
The MCFF features films that address the achievements and challenges of the Cuban people through the eyes of its filmmakers. The festival highlights diverse and challenging films of social change, human struggle and the boldness of the human spirit.
The objective of the Minnesota Cuba Committee, the presenter of the film festival, remains to offer Minnesotans a chance to learn about and appreciate Cuban films and culture, and to remind our supporters of the onerous burden that the blockade inflicts on the Cuban people. In spite of ongoing economic challenges and the US blockade Cuba shows the way forward with its medical research, environmental sustainability, and the new progressive Family Code.
This year the films lineup is outstanding, as follows (click film title link for more information):
