Since 1992, the Providence Latin American Film Festival has been lauded for showcasing Latin American, Portuguese, and Spanish feature films, shorts, documentaries, and animations. This year's lineup of 10 moving pictures explores film as a vehicle for expressing and understanding the Latin American experience, from the documentary No Woman, No Cry on the struggles of pregnant women to Hora Cero, an action-packed heist film set in Venezuela. VIPs have access to every film in the lineup, as well as to art exhibits, panel discussions, filmmaker-led workshops, and popcorn-nibbling lessons. With passes to the opening or closing night's soirees, attendees may carouse with the festival's board of directors, corporate sponsors, and party-hat-wearing projectors while munching on appetizers and celebratory cuisine. The opening-night after-party kicks cinematic things off at Roots Café, where invite holders will receive a drink ticket, and Temple Restaurant hosts the closing-night party.

During shoots at Portrait Simple—a studio specialized in child, infant, maternity, and family portraits—skilled photographers snap an unlimited number of poses in front of a choice of backgrounds and provide the convenience of instant printing. Sessions can take any size group, accommodating families and close-knit juries. Models don simple duds without heavy patterns or logos and can tote props such as sports equipment or special blankies. After striking jubilant, winsome, or wrathful poses, guests sit down with the photographer to select images to turn into prints.

Catherine Hellman’s secret is cookies. Freshly baked cookies, to be exact. Every day upon arriving at her studio, she pops a batch into her on-site oven, their aroma coaxing smiles from even the grumpiest of guests. Catherine and Carl¬¬––her co-photog and husband¬¬––go out of their way to help their patrons “relax and really feel welcome,” fostering a cozy, friendly atmosphere for their shoots via a living room-like studio set-up and the fragrant aroma of the aforementioned cookies. In the years since they started their business, the duo has morphed into a snapping dream team, working in tandem on every shoot to combine their separate skills and strengths into those of one super-photographer. Champions of capturing naturalistic shots, they set camera-shy sitters at ease with casual conversation or, when faced with moody children or lonely ventriloquists, they introduce a cheerful puppet. Catherine and Carl have five children of their own and, as a result, their forte lies in creating candid shots of kids and families that encapsulate the energy and personalities of each of their subjects.:
