What a great experience!! It was such a great experience being press, the location of the event is great and brings togetherness for not only students but the filmmakers and watchers. An opportunity for us Hawai’i folk to embrace the international styles and artistic creations for such a fun event. So bummed I didn’t take greater advantage of this being that I thought the following weekend HIFF was still playing on island but it was outer islands that I misinterpreted. Though very excited to experience the next one on another island! So awesome that they made this available for outer islanders!
