HGLCF was part of the amazing ClexaCon 2018 in Las Vegas. We screened the Hawaii-made “A Place In the Middle”, and shared news about HRFF29 to a sold out convention of more than 4,000 entertainers, industry leaders, media makers and fans. Thanks to our Platinum Sponsors Hawaiian Airlines and Aqua-Aston Hospitality, we shared a little extra aloha by giving a lucky winner a free trip to Honolulu to coincide with HRFF29 in August.
