My First HIFF Moment: HIFF Opening Press Conference

HONOLULU, HI October 30, 2014. The HIFF Opening Press Conference was held at the Halekulani Hotel, Waikiki. It was the first press conference I have ever been attending. Hawaii Film Festival is properly not the most famous film festival, at least not for the Europeans. But HIFF is the festival where the east meets the west, in the middle of […]

Teddy Bear – emotionally gripping movie about an increasing “trend” in Scandinavia

Teddy Bear is about a very shy bodybuilder from Denmark who travels to Thailand to try and find the love of his life.

That First Time…

Last night, HIFF took me to Japan. I had the opportunity of watching two contemporary films by Japanese directors. Looking back at the evening, I would have to say the free parking really helped boost my experience! I got to the theatres earlier than I had anticipated, so I headed to the lounge across the street.
