    We were so honored to be a part of this festival. My film, Back In The Day, got official selection and was screened on April 30th, 2022. The festival was extremely organized and had many events available for filmmakers. Highly recommend submitting to this festival!

  • HWCSFF was welcoming from the timely communications and the delicious tacos at the opening party. The Bitpix viewing option was awesome for catching some of the films I missed. I met so many talented filmmakers and it was wonderful to experience it all in one weekend at the famous TCL Chinese Theatres.
