El Festival de Cine Europeo de Puerto Rico cumple diez años y queremos invitarle a ser parte de esta gran fiesta. Cada año, la organización sin fines de lucro Alliance Française Puerto Rico hace lo imposible y más por traer la crème de la crème del cine europeo y del talento local a las salas de Fine Arts Miramar y a nuestras comunidades. Para poder cumplir con las grandes metas de este año, necesitamos su apoyo.

Su aportación a esta campaña servirá para:

1. Sufragar los premios para los cineastas que concursan en Cortadito, nuestra competencia de cortometrajes puertorriqueños, 

2. Alcanzar a más niños con la muestra de filmes infantiles Festinema Junior, que presentará trabajos franceses a 1,500 niños y jóvenes de manera gratuita. Esta correrá paralelamente al Festival de Cine Europeo, durante las mañanas.

3. Nuestra gira de cine este próximo verano, que llevará cortos locales a puertorriqueños en los 78 municipios. Contará con los mejores cortometrajes que se han presentado en la competencia de cortometrajes puertorriqueños, Cortadito.

Este año, el Festival promete tres semanas de fiesta, actividades, cuatro grandiosos cortometrajes puertorriqueños y 19 películas de 14 países europeos que nos dejarán con ganas de más. Su aportación es indispensable para asegurar que el 10mo Festival de Cine Europeo de Puerto Rico sea inolvidable.

La Alliance Française de Puerto Rico es una Organización sin fines de lucro. Como tal, los donantes al festival pueden recibir los mismos incentivos tributarios que recibirían si donasen a cualquier otra entidad sin fines de lucro.

This April, the Puerto Rico European Film Festival celebrates its tenth anniversary, and we want to invite you to be part of this cinematic celebration. Every year the non-profit organization Alliance Française Puerto Rico does the impossible to bring you the best of European cinema and the best of local talent to Fine Arts Miramar and local communities. But to reach that goal we need your help. 

It is for this reason that we request your help in this fundraising campaign, which will help us fulfill the following goals: 

1.    Finance the prizes for the contestant filmmakers of Cortadito, the Puerto Rican short film competition.

2.    Be able to reach more of Puerto Rico’s youth through Festinema Junior, which will run parallel to the Puerto Rico European Film Festival during the mornings and will present French films to nearly 1,500 kids and teens at no cost.

3.    Present this year’s entries from our Cortadito Puerto Rican Short Film Competition to the Island’s 78 municipalities during our film tour this summer. 

With pre-festival activities in March and official Festival week in April, this year’s edition promises three weeks of celebration, activities, four great Puerto Rican short films, and around 20 feature-length presentations from 14 European countries that will leave you wanting more. Your much appreciated financial support will ensure that the 10th Puerto Rico European Film Festival will be unforgettable.
