Event

Utah might have Sundance, but Gibara has Cine Pobre. In 2003, the late Cuban director Humberto Solas launched this low-budget festival in the local movie theatre called Cine Jiba after falling in love with the seaside town of Gibara. Even though the seven-day festival is a bit off the grid, it still attracts more than US$100,000 in prize money.
