“We hope that through this forum some of the youth who participate will be inspired to become filmmakers and share their own stories,” said HBFF founder and executive director Tanya Kersey-Henley.

HBFF tacked on their kiddie extravaganza after discovering nearly 35% of attendees were families with children. Fest has tapped the broader family audience in its efforts to launch independent films and filmmakers by bringing them media and industry attention.
