This two hour program was curated by award winning filmmaker O.F. Makarah, the founder and Executive Director of the 12-year old Heritage Film Festival.
Attendees will have a chance to see very interesting experimental work, and to engage with the filmmakers in discussions about the stories and techniques used in their films.
