Erie International Film Festival Invites Submission of “Cuba, Libre?”


Although Cuba, Libre? has been in 51 film festivals to-date, today marked the first time that a festival director has taken the initiative to request that the film be submitted to his festival.

Here’s the e-mail Producer/Director, Dick Jordan, received from Frank Leczner, Jr., the Director of the Erie International Film Festival:

“I am contacting you today because your film “Cuba, Libre?” has been brought to my attention as an incredible work of filmmaking.

“… I am impressed with the quality of filmmaking and level of excellence that you have invested into the project as an artisan of film, and I feel that it would be a phenomenal addition to our 2019 program.

“To that end, and with complete respect and admiration for your craft as a Filmmaker, I would like to cordially invite you to both submit your film to our Festival, and for it to participate in our 2019 event.
