Puerto Rico Film Festival presents some of the greatest new feature films and short films by emerging filmmakers to be recognize by a series of Jury and Audience Awards. We present films and short films that promote values, family and social interest subjects.
ENFOQUE for the past 12 years has worked hard to create a festival full of passion and inspiration. Providing opportunities for filmmakers for all over the world. PRFF has managed to have a constant growth in audience and in its annual proposal like no other film festival in Puerto Rico ... but that was just the beginning.
With the experience acquired over the years, we have been able to see the need for the film industry in Puerto Rico to have a festival that can have the highest expectations and it led us to take great determination. After long hours of meetings with our festival board and consultations with great pillars of the film industry in Puerto Rico, we have made the challenging decision to transform the festival and turn it into the Puerto Rico Film Festival.
Our festival has distinguished itself over the years for creating a space where the filmmaker can present their work with excellence. The Puerto Rico Film Festival will continue that legacy but we want to draw world attention to Puerto Rico as a destination for world film industry; promoting at the same time the artistic excellence and the creativity of the artists.
