My name is Estefania Escalante and this was my first year going to HIFF! Every year I would see signs about HIFF and would say I would go but I never really did. I finally went and I can just say that I am actually quite surprised I was kind of expecting more of a convention style festival. Other than that I actually liked it. I think next year I am going to plan out which movies I will watch in advanced. This year a lot of things came up so I was only able to watch the last show on the last day, which wasn’t bad at all. I actually really liked it. It was about thieves planning out a very structured plot to steal a very precious piece of jewelry. It went from one thief to the other. It was pretty hilarious and I would recommend it to everyone. 🙂 All in all I was really pleased with this years HIFF.
