We are pleased in your interest to participate in this year’s 2017 International Puerto Rican Heritage Film Festival!
The IPRHFF will feature films on the subject of Puerto Rico, its people, including those in the diaspora, or that have personnel of Puerto Rican descent in any production role.
However, our broader goal is to foster a collaborative environment for artists from all countries to explore issues and stories relevant to the larger Latino community through the IPRHFF. This Festival is open to all filmmakers Latinos and Non Latinos.
We have developed programs that allow a spectrum of filmmakers, from emerging artists to film industry veterans, to reach out to audiences throughout New York City.
The IPRHFF looks to illustrate that cinema is a universal language that can broaden appreciation and communicate the experiences of heritage, regardless of the cinematic artist’s country of origin.
Screenings will take place at various NYC locations to be determined. The Festival dates are November 8-12, 2017.
