If you’re looking for film with flavor, you’re in luck this week.
The Third Annual International Puerto Rican Heritage Film Festival (IPRHFF) kicks off this Wed., Nov. 13th at Mount Sinai Medical Center’s Hatch Theater and MIST Harlem.
Sponsors include Telemundo 47, NBC-TV, Mount Sinai Medical Center, MIST Harlem, New York Academy of Medicine, and Chivas.
It runs through Sun., Nov. 17th.
Thousands of people from across the city are expected to attend the festival, which highlights as diverse a representation of Puerto Rican heritage as it features various media – all in what many consider the very mecca of the Puerto Rican experience in New York: El Barrio.
“I felt that El Barrio was missing something other than what is there now,” explained Verónica Caicedo, IPRHFF’s Director and CEO.
