Havana's Payret Movie Theater

HAVANA TIMES, Nov. 17 — The 32nd Havana Film Festival is only two weeks away from opening. Cuba’s foremost cinema happening includes hundreds of full length and short films from Latin America and around the world.

The much awaited event takes place at over a dozen of the capital’s theaters where an avid local movie going population and foreign guests can take in the films from Dec. 2-12.

Unlike festivals in other countries where ticket prices soar to see the festival entries, in Cuba the regular 2 peso entrance (ten cents of a US dollar) is maintained for locals and a “passport” will get them into 15 films for 20 pesos.

Foreign visitors can take in the entire festival for a US $40 pass that includes the opening and closing ceremonies and other special activities.

In the coming days Havana Times will be giving our readers previews on what’s to expect at the festival.
