And that’s a wrap!
This season, HRAFF screened over 40 films, ran 13 panel discussions and Q&As in five different cities nationwide. With an audience of over 8500 people and many of the film sessions selling out, we’ll call that a success! As we prepare for the 2014 season, feel free to check out all our event highlights on Facebook.
Schools and Communities
HRAFF’s Schools & Community Program (SAC) continues the reach of the festival by focusing on young people and others who are unable to attend the festival. We believe that film evokes empathy and compassion in a way that a lecture or lesson often cannot.
For this reason film is a wonderful way to highlight the value of difference and diversity in all areas of life and connect individuals with an understanding of the human condition.
