Fans of the Beloit International Film Festival (February 21-March 1, 2020) have a chance to to preview Cuba, Libre? at a special screening on May 1, 2020 at the Hendricks Center for the Arts on the Beloit College campus in Beloit, Wisconsin, as part of the festival’s “Year ‘Round” program.

The film’s Producer/Director, Dick Jordan, will participate in and audience Q&A session via Skype from his home in Eugene, Oregon.

The festival’s Website says:

“The Beloit International Film Festival (BIFF) will be celebrating its 15th year in 2020.

“One of the key principles the festival was founded on was a respect for, and celebration of, the filmmakers who share their art with us.

“With upwards of 150 filmmakers attending each year, we are pleased that they have found value in the Capra-esque surroundings of the 10 day festival and the intimate relationships with our engaged audiences.

“Featuring upwards of 100 independent and international films, as well as a dozen special events, the festival provides free admission to everything for all visiting filmmakers (4 all-access passes per film for actors and crew, too).”

Although the festival will not formally announce which films it has selected for the February 2020 festival until December 1, 2019, in an e-mail to Producer/Director, Dick Jordan, last week, the festival’s Greg Gerard said:

Cuba, Libre? is one of the highest rated submissions so far for the 2020 Beloit International Film Festival, and a film that we want to promote as likely to be part of our festival lineup next February!”

And That Makes Forty-Four!
