Greetings from Havana Film Festival!  Is anyone here?

Sundance has started a Film Festival Summit,
www.CaribbeanAssociationFilmFestivals.com is just beginning - I am writing
about Bruce Paddington, the head and founder of trinidad tobago film
festival who is spearheading this.  It won¹t be launched until 2015
publicly but is a big deal in the Caribbean.  They are getting advice from
Peter (?) from the Toronto Association of Film Festivals (77 festivals!).
I don¹t have Peter¹s last name; he was the Film Commissioner for Toronto

P.S.  I am teaching my first live course on International Film Marketing,
Sales and Distribution at Woodbury University in Burbank, California and
will basse the course on the Festival (and Market Circuit).  Besides that,
I am writing Iberoamerican Film Financing for the Guadalajara Film
Festival/ Publishing/ University (all run by El Patronato de Guadalajara).

Any help on either of these is welcome!
