ENGLISH

Cuba is the Country Focus for the 15th Irish Latin American Film Festival 2014. It will take place in Dublin, Galway and for 2014, Limerick to celebrate its status as City of Culture for 2014. The Cuba Focus will also screen in Birr.
Screenings will start at times stated and admission to all screenings is free.
Despite a brutal and ongoing embargo imposed by the US, Cuba continues to fulfil its social, environmental and cultural obligations. Its filmmakers and its indigenous film production continue to be supported, examples of which are selected for this Festival. It cannot be said for most other countries, burdened by a global indebtedness including Ireland. As a consequence of this odious and permanent debt imposed on the Irish people, the cutbacks include the Arts and its film industry. Of course, the small grant that this Festival gets was also cut back. [www.nodebt.ie]
The 34th Festival Internacional del Nuevo Cine Latinoamericano each December [www.habanafilmfestival.com] has proved a rich source this year for a diverse range of shorts from Latin America (most of which make up the LATIN [HAVANA] SHORTS programme). This programme was acquired by Rosalind and Derek Fanning on a visit to Cuba in 2013. In gratitude, the Havana shorts and its succeeding programme about Cuba will screen at The Tin Jug Studio, Birr, Co Offaly on Monday 29th April. The newly appointed Cuban Ambassador to Ireland, Dr. Hermes Herrera will introduce the Cuban Focus in Dublin (Wednesday 9th at 6.00 pm) and in Birr (Tuesday 29th at 6.00 pm). We are very lucky to accompany the shorts with two recent Irish films focussing on Cuba. These screenings are dedicated to filmmaker, Bernie O Dwyer, who passed away last July, and was an assertive supporter of the sustainable survival of Cuba.
Once again, this bilingual Festival features indigenous languages (Aymara in Seeds of Resilience, Creole in Kenbe La Ayiti and Quechua in Food not Fuel).
For filmmakers in attendance at the Festival, they will be welcomed in Irish and English.
Once again, The Festival sincerely thanks the goodwill of all the filmmakers and the honour to screen their films in this Festival.

Tá Cúba mar théama den 15ú Féile Scannán Mheiriceá Laidineach. Beidh sé ar siúl i Baile Átha Cliath, Gaillimh, Luimneach (Cathair Culturtha 2014) agus Biorra.
Beidh na taispeántais mar a fógraíodh agus tá saorchead isteach chuig gach taispeántas.
In ainneoin embargo dian agus leanúnach na Stáit-Aontaithe, leanann Cúba ar aghaidh lena gcuid oibre shóisialta, chomhshaoil agus cultúrtha. Tugtar tacaíocht i gCúba do lucht déanta agus leiriú scannán dúchasach, a bhfuil samplaí dá gcuid oibre roghnaithe don Fhéile seo. Ní féidir an rud céanna a rá faoi thíortha eile atá faoi uallach fiacha domhanda, Éire san áireamh. Mar thoradh ar na dubh-fhiacha buana atá gearrtha ar mhuintir na Éireann, tá ciorruithe ar na hEalaíon agus tionscal na scannán. Dár ndóigh, gearradh siar ar an deontas beag a bhí á fháil ag an Fhéile seo chomh maith. [www.nodebt.ie]
Arís i mbliana is foinse íontach scannáin atá sa 34ú Festival Internacional del Nuevo Cine Latinoamericano a reachtáiltear gach Nollaig (www.habanafilmfestival.com). Tá réimse leathan de ghearrscannáin ó Mheiriceá Laidineach (an chuid is mó sa Chlár Gearrscannáin Latino [Havana]). Fuair Rosalind agus Derek Fanning an clár seo agus iad ar cuairt ar Chúba i 2013. Mar bhuíochas dóibh, beidh na gearrscannáin faoi Chúba ar siúl sa Stiúdeo Tin Jug, i mBiorra, Uíbh Fháilí ar an Luan, 29 Aibreán. Beidh an t-Ambasadóir Chúba. Dr Hermes Herrera i láthair I Baile Átha Cliath (Céadaíon 9ú Aibreán ag 6.00 i.n.) agus i Biorra (Mairt 29ú ag 6.00 i.n). Tá an t-ádh linn dhá scannán Eireannacha, ar théama Chúba, a thaispeáint chomh maith. Beidh na scannáin seo in omós do Bhernie Dwyer, a d'éag mí Iúil seo caite, bean a thug tacaíocht íontach do inmharthanacht Chúba.
Beidh teangacha dúchasacha mar chuid den Fhéile dátheangach seo arís (Aymara i "Seeds of Resilience", Creole i "Kenbe La Ayiti" agus Quechua i "Food not Fuel").
Cuirfear fáilte roimh déantóiri scannán atá i láthair ag an Fhéile trí Ghaeilge agus Béarla.
Arís eile, gabhann an Fhéile buíochas le na déantóirí scannán; is onóir dúinn a gcuid scannáin a thaispeáint ag an Fhéile seo.

Go raibh mile maith agaibh.
Tadhg Ó Cruadhlaoich,
Festival Co-ordinator
