Cuban-American Film, "Zafiros Locura Azul," to Be Screened at the Silver Lake Film Festival in Los Angeles

MIAMI, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 18, 2007 -- Fuego Entertainment, Inc. (OTCBB: FUGO) today announced that its film, "Zafiros Locura Azul," has been invited to participate in the 7th annual Silver Lake Film Festival. Beginning on May 3rd to the 12th, the festival will screen "Zafiros Locura Azul" on Sunday, May 6, 2007.

"I am excited to showcase 'Zafiros Locura Azul' at the Silver Lake Film Festival this year. The venue will provide the opportunity to gain an audience and continue its distribution to the domestic and international film market," said Hugo M. Cancio, CEO of Fuego Entertainment.

"Zafiros Locura Azul," meaning "Sapphire Blue Madness," is a feature film produced by Hugo M. Cancio and filmed in Cuba, depicting the story of Los Zafiros, a very popular Cuban vocal quartet of the 1960s. The story is told through recreations of their appearances and use of actual footage. Their innovative vocalizations drove them to the top of the charts and their high-energy dance movements put Los Zafiros into the history books. Cuban music was forever changed when Los Zafiros appeared on the scene. Los Zafiros featured polyphonic vocals that packed Havana's clubs and gained popularity on Cuban television and radio

The feature film will be screened as a double-header on Sunday, May 6th, at 10:00PM with a runtime of 115 minutes at the Los Feliz 3 Cinemas (1822 North Vermont Avenue, Los Angeles, CA) with Filmmaker Lorenzo DeStefano's documentary, "Los Zafiros: Music from the Edge of Time."

Filmed in 1997, "Zafiros Locura Azul" has never been commercially released, but has won many international film festival awards, including the Audience Award in 1997 at the Havana Film Festival and the Best Actor Award for Nestor Jimenez at the San Juan International Film Festival in 1998.
