MEXICO CITY — In Hollywood terms, it was small change. But for Miguel Coyula, a Cuban filmmaker accustomed to working on a tiny budget, the $5,200 he raised on the crowdfunding site Indiegogo.com last year would have bought some lighting equipment, a Steadicam and a tripod, all crucial for his science-fiction feature, “Blue Heart.” However, Indiegogo suspended the campaign in August and froze the money after determining that transferring funds to Cuba or a Cuban resident would violate the United States’ economic embargo.
