Cuban Media Project

An International Collaboration: Connect - Curate - Cuba

Much of Cuba’s media culture has been hidden from view, particularly for those in the U.S. At William & Mary, we have been working to change this, showcasing the island’s films, filmmakers and graphic designers through our collections and innovative collaborations. Our broad network of partnerships, developed over the past quarter-century, has positioned us to amass a robust collection of physical and digitally-born materials. In addition to collecting videos, we have been creating an expansive array of resources, among them filmed interviews, subtitled documentaries, translated film scripts, original videos and curricula. The Cuban Media Project at W&M Libraries is making these resources freely and widely available.
