Ninth Annual Hi Mom! Film Festival

After a class that I taught in Carrboro tonight, my wife and I walked to a nearby bar where the first night of the ninth annual Hi Mom! Film Festival was underway. It is a festival of short films, some only a minute or two or even less in length, submitted by international entrants competing for prizes.

Thankfully the first night was free - we didn't like the smoky too-small bar that afforded poor viewing of the screen, and didn't much enjoy the films that we saw. I did like the last film shown,
Westbound/Eastbound (director Rohan Bader from Toronto, made in 2005, 5 minutes), a pleasant music video focused on inclusivity and togetherness, shot on a Toronto subway platform.
