In its third year, the Havana Glasgow Film Festival (HGFF) 2017 opened last night in Glasgow, Scotland. We spoke with Co-Director and Founder of the HGFF, Eirene Houston. Eirene works with Co-Director Hugo Rivalta (from Havana) to run the Festival each year. It’s the second day of the Festival, and Eirene is in a rush and her phone battery won’t recharge. We cornered her and she had enough time to answer a couple of our questions.
This interview with the Havana-Glasgow founder Eirene Houston has been archived and can be found in the upcoming book on Conversations with Cuba – The Cuba Interviews: 35 Conversations on Foreign Investment and Economic Development.
