Vieques Film Festival/ Festival de Cine en Vieques, April 8-10, 2016

filmfestivalThe Brittany Dance, Film & Theatre Foundation is pleased to announce our latest event!

April 8-10 we will be hosting the 1st Annual (hopefully Annual!) Vieques International Film Festival! The Film Festival will take place at Moonlight Campground (if you haven’t been there for a movie yet, you must) and will showcase multiple short films and 3 feature films (narrative and documentary) created by filmmakers of Puerto Rican, Hispanic, and Latino heritage. Our goal is to help support burgeoning filmmakers of this heritage and slowly begin creating The Brittany film education program for the people of Isla Nena, all while encouraging tourism to the Island and bringing quality entertainment to everyone here.

We are currently accepting film submissions and will announce the official festival calendar in a few weeks. Screenings will take place at night, of course, at this wonderful outdoor space, but we hope to have many panels for discussion with filmmakers for all who are interested, as well as local artisans, local food, and promotional tourism.

We are currently looking for sponsorship partners and more. And if you know of any local filmmakers who would like to submit a film for consideration, please let us know! We will be posting more information as it develops.

All proceeds aside from costs will go to The Brittany Dance, Film & Theatre Foundation and to helping continue to bring more and more new Arts classes to the Island of Vieques! We hope this will become an annual event for the Island and look forward to your support! Contact the Foudation at 917-703-8944
