Viva Cuba! WORDS OF REVOLUTION is going to Havana!

This was probably the best early Christmas present that I have ever had... My film got accepted at Havana Film Festival in Cuba. I would of never imagine that I would ever go to Cuba. Not only is Cuba a historic place ... It is one of the best or the best Latin Film Festival in the world.

I  couldn't believe that my film entered this film festival. Its definitely the highlight of the year for me. I have to say once I touched grounds on the island...  my whole life felt like it was changing in front of me. I can't really explain what I felt, but it was a good feeling.  I didn't know what to expect, but learned really fast that I was around some heavy hitters in the Latin movie business. I saw some incredible films that I probably wouldn't see in the states. Also, there were people who were hardcore movie lovers as well.

What I liked most was that I got to experience another culture...I felt like I was living in the 50's in Cuba. There were a lot regulations as well because it was a Communist country. But people were very pleasant and nice. They definitely live a simple life. There were no crimes or did I have to be worried about getting robbed. It was a very peaceful place. It was a world where there is a lack of  television and internet. I just imagine how life can be again without the internet...

Cuba really changed my life ...
