Puerto Rico Film Friends Relief

Please donate to help this enormous recovery effort. Your donations will go directly to the Puerto Rican film community. 

CINE is proud to partner with Blue Rider San Juan, Pimienta Films and Dragonfly Cinematic for Puerto Rico Film Friends Relief to immediately benefit the displaced film community of Puerto Rico after the historic devastation left by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria.

The lives of over 3.5 million people in Puerto Rico are in desperate need. They need our help.

“Walter Josten (CINE Golden Eagle recipient ’99) has brought together an extended film family over the past two years by shooting six films in Puerto Rico, including REPLICAS starring Keanu Reeves (2016); CIGARETTE starring John Travolta (2017); ANA starring Andy Garcia, Dahne Keen, and Jean Tripplehorn (2017); DRIVEN starring Jason Sudeikis, Corey Stoll, and Judy Greer (2017); and PRIMAL starring Nicolas Cage (2017). The stars have generously contributed to the relief effort.  Now is the time to assist in this massive humanitarian crisis to help the Puerto Ricans.” ~ Monica Lee Bellais, CINE Board Member.
