We are thrilled to be a sponsor and active part of Gainesville’s Cuban cultural event, Bulla Cubana.

The Bulla Cubana festival celebrates Cuba and fuses the art and ideas of the country with the North Central Florida region.

Based in Gainesville and happening across the city January through March 2017, the event features artists, muralists, dancers, musicians, chefs, mixologists, photographers and filmmakers “for a three-month city-wide celebration.”

From March 24-26, the Hippodrome will be home to one of the festival’s main cinematic events, the Cuban Film Festival.

On March 13th and 20th the Hippodrome will host a staged reading of My Little Sister by local Cuban playwright Carlos Asse.

Beginning Friday, the Hippodrome Cinema will be showing three feature films: Before Night Falls (2000), Chico y Rita (2010) and Playing Lecuona (2015).


Tickets are $9. For more information on Bulla Cubana and its other events, visit bullacubana.org.
