Interview with Eirene Houston, Founder of the Havana Glasgow Film Fest

Craig Wiiliams, Translator and Journalist, Jonal Cosculluela, Director of Esteban, Eirene Houston, Festival Director, and Luis Alberto Garcia, Cuban actor, at launch party.

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This interview with the Havana-Glasgow founder Eirene Houston has been archived and can be found in the upcoming book on Conversations with Cuba – The Cuba Interviews: 35 Conversations on Foreign Investment and Economic Development.
