Honoring a wide variety of cinema and awarding storytellers from around the globe… We present some of the greatest new feature films and short films by emerging filmmakers to be recognize by a series of Jury and Audience Awards. The films we select and exhibit – whether they inspire, uplift, educate, transform and inform, or have the ability to shift audiences’ perspectives on the world – all have one thing in common: they are entertaining films that do more than just entertain. We present films that promote values, family and social interest subjects.
Hosted in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico surrounded by historical buildings and beautiful beaches. The festive city of Mayaguez is the perfect place to experience true Puerto Rican culture. Puerto Rico lives up to its nickname, the Island of Enchantment. With lush rain forests, dazzling beaches and shimmering city, Puerto Rico has something for everyone. Dive through coral reefs, trek through jungles to spy rare birds and plants, surf Caribbean waves, or simply sprawl on the sand and sunbathe.
