Refreshments & light food as well as the Poet’s Den current art exhibition will entertain audiences, sponsors, program advertisers & well wishers, and audiences.
Closing reception will begin at 8pm.
The mission of the International Puerto Rican Heritage Film Festival is to recognize the Puerto Rican community’s place in the history of the City of New York as its first and largest Spanish-speaking group to migrate & settle and who made it possible of 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 tradition, our creative (collective & individual) thought, and contribution to the social fabric of the global community.
