Our 2019 summer film fundraiser was a great success!
Last Friday HRAFF provided an advanced screening at ACMI of one of this years most anticipated documentaries – Minding The Gap.
The HRAFF team would like to say an incredibly big THANK YOU to everyone who was able to make it to our first fundraising event of 2019. Through the generous support of many HRAFFers we were able to raise a great source of funds to put towards our exciting upcoming festival for 2019 – dates to be announced soon.
Bing Liu’s award winning direction wowed those in attendance, and the breathtaking skateboarding sequences were an incredible cinematic achievement. At its heart, this film examines race, class and manhood in 21st-century America, but this Academy Award shortlisted film also provided those present at ACMI on Friday night with an unexpected appreciation of Liu and his childhood friends’ skateboarding skills and artistry.
