MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The mission of the International Puerto Rican Heritage Film Festival (IPRHFF) is to recognize the Puerto Rican community's place in the history of New York City as the first and largest Spanish speaking group to migrate & settle here and who made it possible for other Caribbean & Latin Americans to do the same.

The festival also seeks to display and maintain the richness of Puerto Rican cultural traditions, creative expressions, and contributions to the welfare and growth of the United States.

Lastly, the International Puerto Rican Heritage Film Festival's mission is to encourage narrative and documentary film making for the purposes of archiving the continuous presence, development, and contributions of Puerto Ricans, our culture, our traditions, our creative (collective & individual) thought and contributions to the social fabric of the global community.


ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The festival's objective is to Build an appreciation for the presence and contributions of Puerto Ricans on the island, in the United States and across the globe.

Acknowledge the pioneering efforts of Puerto Ricans among Spanish-speaking groups in New York City.

Support traditionally Puerto Rican neighborhoods by realizing events that revitalize their economies and strengthen and extend their connection to the greater New York City community and beyond.

Maintain El Barrio (The Neighborhood) as the cradle of the Puerto Rican community in the City and a cultural, living landmark worthy of preserving its history and legacy.

Create self awareness: assist artists connect to the larger Puerto Rican community and serve as a catalyst for development through the arts and
culture.
