The Humboldt Park Film Festival is an annual event showcasing films, both features and shorts, from Puerto Rico. The festival is not genre specific so any film can be screened. The criteria can cover one or more of the festival requirements, and they are: the movie is filmed in Puerto Rico; if the movie is not filmed in Puerto Rico, then either the producer, director, writer and/or lead actress/actor is Puerto Rican.
The HPFF will take place in Chicago every year, the week following the Puerto Rican parade which is usually held the third week of June. This year, the festival will run the weekend of June 23-25.
You can purchase advanced tickets for any single day for only for $10, or you can purchase advanced tickets for the entire weekend for $20 (savings of $10).
