Main Benefactors

John & Maria Pfeffer

The Pfefers made José Ignacio their family base in the region when they moved from Buenos Aires to Brussels almost three decades ago and ended up making it their home. Their support towards JIIFF is one of the several actions that confirms their leit motiv: make a difference. With immense gratitude and joy, we celebrate once again the partnership with Maria and John Pfeffer.

Benefactors is a space created for those who share our love and passion for cinema but, most of all, for those who share the purpose that drives us to make JIIFF an outstanding and fundamental cultural event in the region. The impact of the Benefactors as sponsors of JIIFF goes beyond the week of screenings and meetings, since their contribution makes the work of our entire team possible throughout the year. Our Benefactors receive our public recognition and gratitude, in addition to living the experience and realization of JIIFF in a completely different way that the rest of the audience.

Edda & Rob Kofler

The Kofler's arrived from Austria and fell in love with José Ignacio, feeling immediately at home. A few years later they opened Posada Ayana, a unique place that has become a refuge for art and culture as well as design and architecture. Today, as a part of it all, they offer the experience of Ta Khut, the first freestanding “Skyspace" in South America by James Turrell. They are beyond excited to be able to share his work with the town of Jose Ignacio and all visitors.

Uruguayan by birth, Canadian by adoption, Jessica Taylor returns to José Ignacio every summer to travel the lands of the country where she grew up. Through her commitment to art and culture, she supports and stands by different art related projects. She has traveled through different countries and in every corner she preaches about the natural beauty of José Ignacio, as a treasure that her friends have to get to know. With that spirit, every summer she receives in her house friends from different parts of the world to whom she presents the attributes of this place.
