Honoring Inspiration Film Festival 2013
Short film is a wonderful medium to showcase the talents of our Washington State Creatives. Filmmakers intertwine numerous forms of art including music, the spoken word, and acting as well as camera, lighting, and technical skills to create a powerful style of communication. We honor these skills, gifts and talents, and we believe that HIFF will bring well-deserved visibility to the art of filmmaking and the message of inspiration that filmmakers wish to share.
HonorWorks wants to see what inspires you as a creator. We're inviting you to be part of our First Annual HIFF and to submit your music video, short film, or documentary that brings your honor and inspiration to the screen.
The idea of a film festival grew from HonorWorks desire to spread the message of hope and healing through the concept of honor. Swil Kanim, the organization’s main spokesperson, is a musician, actor, storyteller and producer. He speaks and performs on local, national and international levels, encouraging people of all ages and cultures to express themselves through art and music.
“We have so many talented people in our community whose creativity should be fostered and celebrated. The Honoring Inspiration Film Festival will focus that creativity into a visible example of motivation and inspiration for others,” says Kathy Dorr, board member of HonorWorks.
