Wow, being at HIFF was a wonderful experience! I was very fortunate to not only have a press pass (shout out to Britos for providing them), but also the location of this momentous event as I thought it was extremely convenient. Although some of the days and times conflicted with another class that I have to take next semester, it was a great opportunity for those who live in Hawai’i to observe the techniques and creations worldwide. I was very appreciative of this since I believe Hawai’i is a melting pot of cultures. Overall, I hope HIFF continues to thrive in the years ongoing.
