    Bridging Communities through Movies

    Since its inception in 2001, the Boston Latino International Film Festival has been committed to using the power of film to break stereotypes, bring cultures and communities together and reveal the complex issues that affect the Latinx community in the United States, Latin America and Spain.

    The 20th annual Boston Latino International Film Festival (BLIFF) is thrilled to announce its 2021 festival online. BLIFF will once again showcase the diverse voices originating in U.S.-based Latinx communities, and in the Americas and beyond, with screenings from September 24 – October 3, 2021.

    BLIFF's tickets will go on sale in September on a soon-to-be-announced date. For a a complete schedule of the festival, visit bliff.org.

    WIFVNE is proud to co-present WOMEN IS LOSERS

    In 1960's San Francisco, bright and talented Catholic school girl Celina Guerrera (Lorenza Izzo) survives a difficult home life by following the rules. That is until an indiscretion creates a series of devastating consequences. As Celina faces the compounded obstacles of being young and alone, she sets out to rise above the oppression of poverty and invest in a future that sets new precedents for the time. Inspired by real women and the Janis Joplin song of the same title, WOMEN IS LOSERS world premiered at the 2021 SXSW Film Festival, where it finished as one of the most-watched of the festival.

    The Boston Palestine Film Festival (BPFF) brings Palestine-related cinema, narratives, and culture to New England audiences.

    The festival features compelling and thought-provoking films, including documentaries, features, rare early works, video art pieces, and new films by emerging artists and youth. These works from directors around the world offer refreshingly honest, self-described, and independent views of Palestine and its history, culture, and geographically dispersed society.

    Each year, guest filmmakers from various countries and expert commentators add contextual depth to the films. BPFF also offers ancillary cultural programming including concerts by Palestinian musicians and art exhibits by or about Palestinians.

    This initiative is an ongoing program of smaller cultural events, talks, and screenings held throughout the year. In this way, the festival seeks to engage local audiences and sustain Palestinian arts and culture in the city throughout the year, in addition to collaborating with other such festivals in the US and worldwide.

    The Boston Palestine Film Festival is a program of the Middle East Charitable and Cultural Society Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization.

    • New Hampshire

    celebrate the diversity of our world through independent films that educate, enrich and engage audiences.

    Named as "Up and Coming Film Fest" by New Hampshire Magazine, the Monadnock International Film Festival (MONIFF) showcases high quality independent cinema every April for three days in the beautiful Monadnock Region, known for its vibrant arts culture and Mt. Monadnock, one of the world's most climbed mountains. MONIFF features award-winning films on the festival circuit, both domestic and foreign, along with premieres of regionally produced films by New Hampshire and New England filmmakers. The highlight of the festival every year is the presentation of the Jonathan Daniels Award, given to a filmmaker whose work fuses social and/or political awareness with artistic excellence, and encompasses Jonathan Daniels courage by telling stories of hope, redemption, and the triumph of the human spirit.

    The MONIFF vision is to offer a year-round cultural resource for the Monadnock Region through our annual film festival, community film screenings and our Screenwriting In Schools program that we offer to high school students.
