Filmmaking Adventures in Cuba


There is a Cuba that is far more intriguing than that served up as standard tourist fare.  Especially for filmmakers!  It is a land of stunning beauty in its mountains and valleys and coastline. “The Rewards and Challenges of Filming in Cuba” will be a panel discussion featuring filmmakers recently returned from a scouting mission for a proposed documentary series called “Unseen Cuba.” Discussion points include: surprising and fascinating locales, the importance of local guides, exploring the marine environment, travel logistics, health and safety, challenges of working with the Cuban bureaucracy, current U.S. travel restrictions and more.
