    An AMAZING festival that catered to every filmmaker's needs with great attention, putting on a tremendous awards ceremony that celebrated our efforts throughout the year. The organizers and staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The venues were intimate with many screenings across the festival. Thoroughly enjoyable and I highly recommend it:)

    After the whole event, I was even more inspired to make more films. I was inspired by all the other great filmmakers and talents that were present. Their stories, journeys and their movies moved me. Thanks again HIMPFF for opportunity and thanks for recognizing my work.

    Much Respect. See You Soon.
