MISSION & OBJECTIVE

The International Puerto Rican Heritage Film Festival (IPRHFF)’s mission is to create platforms that allow Latinos and a diverse pool of international influencers in entertainment and educational filmmaking to reach a broader audience. We will develop programs that will allow a spectrum of filmmakers, from emerging artists to film industry veterans, to reach out to audiences throughout New York City. Our goal is to foster a collaborative environment for all artists to explore issues inherent to the heritage of Puerto Rico and to develop their craft with direct input from their target audiences.

This Festival is open to all filmmakers Latinos and Non Latinos.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

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.
The IPRHFF supports traditional Puerto Rican neighborhoods by producing events that revitalize their economies and strengthen and extend their connection to the greater New York City community and beyond.
The IPRHFF creates self-awareness. It seeks to assist artists in connecting to the larger Puerto Rican and global community and serve as a catalyst for development in the arts and culture.
