The Second Annual International Puerto Rican Heritage Film Festival (IPRHFF) kicks off Friday, November 16th at the Mount Sinai Medical Center (Leo C. Stern Theater). The 2012 IPRHFF will showcase pioneering, historically significant films and documentaries, contemporary shorts and features, and other innovative films. Every film will either focus on Puerto Rico and its people or will have personnel of Puerto Rican descent in key roles (production and/or acting). Panel discussions throughout the day will explore film industry related topics, scrutinize the challenges and potential for young Latino filmmakers, and consider the context of Puerto Ricans in the cinema today. Finally, receptions and after-parties throughout the weekend will give participants an opportunity to celebrate their Heritage and network with other industry professionals.
 
The festival was founded in 2011 by AfterDark CATV PROductions and Caicedo Productions--founders Veronica Caicedo and Felix Leo Campos, both of Puerto Rican descent, created this festival to educate audience on the history, culture and impact of the Puerto Rican community in New York City.
