Press Credentials


  • This form is to be completed by all media personnel requesting a media credential for the 16th annual HAVANA FILM FESTIVAL NY (HFFNY).
  • Please note that tickets are limited due to the size of our screening rooms. Press tickets are available the day of the screening only, on a first come, first served basis.
  • Priority is given to film reviewers since we do not hold separate press screenings. These tickets will be granted on a daily, film-by-film basis.
  • Only one ticket per film will be issued to any single media outlet.
  • Journalists with accreditation in years past may be asked for proof of coverage.
  • Journalists will be allowed to record the first five minutes of select screenings. HOWEVER, It is essential that you notify a festival representative in advance.

Press Passes will be issued to working press only.

HFFNY will provide:

  • Film screenings, review copies on video/DVD, film press kits and photos. (Any materials checked out should be viewed ONLY by the accredited journalist that borrowed them).
  • Interviews with filmmakers and festival organizers.
  • Broadcast quality video clips from available films.
  • Festival Press Kit & Program
  • Access to shoot your own photos/video footage at filmmaker discussions and festival events.
