US Firm First to Provide Film and
Broadcast Services in Cuba
Cuba International Network (CIN) recently became
the first US company authorized to set up shop in
Cuba to provide equipment and personnel there to
support the production of broadcasting, television,
and filming of video content for consumption in the
US and international markets.
This first-of-its-kind service brings vital film and
broadcasting capability and services to Cuba with
the same standards found in the US. In collaboration
with local partners, CIN provides facilities, services,
and security for people and equipment in Cuba.
From a multi-camera, mobile broadcast unit to ap-
provals, rights assistance, and logistics measures,
CIN supports any size production in virtually any lo-
cation in the island nation and in the region.
“Cuba’s potential as a film and broadcasting destina-
tion is among the most exciting in the world today,
yet the challenge is being capable on the ground in
Cuba. That’s the problem we solve for our clients,”
says Barry Pasternak, CIN’s CEO.
The Emmy award winner has trekked the globe
bringing broadcast and film projects to fruition un-
der time and resource constraints. A recent project
involved providing the technical capability to broad-
cast the X-Games in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil, for his cli-
ent, ESPN. The CIN team has worked with virtually
all the major players in the global TV and broadcast-
ing industry.
“Cuba adds a whole new dimension for the film
and broadcast industry to deliver authentic content
from a country undergoing an exciting cultural and
economic transition in a tropical location,” Pasternak
