Thursday, September 07 / 6pm - 8pm / 3167 Waialae Ave.
Entrance is FREE for HFC members / $5 for non-members (For membership options click HERE.)
One of the most important questions all independent filmmakers face once they made it through the process of creating their film is how to get their work out there to be seen. In this presentation, local producer Connie Florez and writer/director/cinematographer Cindy Iodice will be touching on strategies for submitting to film festivals, getting noticed and promoting your film so it can reach its full potential. Connie and Cindy have just completed a successful festival run with their latest award winning production The Bridge and will share inside information on their experience.
The Bridge (Cindy Iodice -Writer/Director) is a narrative fictional story about Pono, a tenacious seven-year old Hawaiian boy who lives with his family in a five-story tree house, deep in the rainforest of Hawaii's Manoa Valley. By spending time with his native Hawaiian father and through the process of cultural transmission, the boy learns about his ancestral roots and Hawaiian history. Will young Pono's knowledge be enough to help save his mother's life during a chance encounter with the Hawaiian Night Marchers, a troop of ghostly apparitions? - The Bridge has been showcased at festivals world wide and has received 22 awards.
