“Cuba, Libre?” Named A Finalist By Yet Another Film Festival

The Seattle Film Festival is the 65th festival to recognize Cuba, Libre?

SFF had originally planned to screen films before live audiences in Seattle this weekend. But those plans were nixed by restrictions imposed by the State of Washington to control the spread of the coronavirus.

The festival will announce award nominees and winners and the latter films may be shown at the 2021 edition of SFF.

“CUBA, LIBRE?” WINS A FIFTH “BEST DOCUMENTARY” AWARD

Cuba, Libre? scored its fifth “Best Documentary” award and its 19th award overall at October’s Peak City International Film Festival in Apex, North Carolina.

Because of the coronavirus this year the festival’s award ceremony was a “virtual one” with none of the winning filmmakers able to walk down the red carpet and receive their awards in person.

Here’s a short clip from the hour and half-plus event during which the award of a “Gaddy Gold” award to Cuba, Libre? was announced.
