What is the ENFOQUE International Film Festival?

 A 4-day celebration of independent film, the annual ENFOQUE International Film Festival gives its moviegoers access to incredible, unique and inspiring films from independent filmmakers from all over the world, right in the heart of Puerto Rico.  Over 4 days of red carpet premieres and events, parties, workshops and hundreds of film screenings. The 8th annual ENFOQUE Film Festival will take place March 2017 in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico.

What makes the ENFOQUE Film Festival stand out from other festivals?

We Value What Filmmakers Value: Highest possible standard of exhibition. Time to interact with other filmmakers, time to interact with audiences during the Festival and after screenings, and marketing/promotional support during the Festival and beyond.

Hospitality: Volunteers meet filmmakers at the airport and take them to the host where the Festival hospitality suite is staffed with knowledgeable volunteers to greet filmmakers and go over orientation. Festival staff goes out of their way to introduce themselves to filmmakers, talk to them in all venues. Ultimately we want filmmakers to feel like rock stars with badges that let sponsors and volunteers and attendees know who they are, introductions to sponsors, nice accommodations, punctual ground transportation, etc.

We Actually Watch Your Movies: When a film is submitted to the ENFOQUE Film Festival, we guarantee that it will be seen–in its entirety–by at least three separate individuals (jury members and staff).  Each film is scored and is given feedback based on standard judging criteria, and that feedback is available to filmmakers upon request.

What kinds of filmmakers perks does the ENFOQUE Film Festival offer?

Prizes to the top winners  including broadcasting contracts from Shorts HD.

ENFOQUE Awards Ceremony designed to highlight the filmmakers and their films, giving out Grand Prizes while celebrating and spotlighting all of the Festival Award winners.

For Official Selection filmmakers we offer discounted hotel rates, ground transportation to and from airport, hotels and venues, Filmmaker Badge, free entrance to all screenings, after parties and events passes.
