Manaiakalani Film Festival 2010

A humorous and fun experience for many students of various age groups, uniting the schools of our neighbourhood at the colossal screens. It was a bright sunlit Thursday morning and our school was travelling to the renowned Hoyts theatre recognized for its superb surround sound and titanic screens.

At last after a painstaking period of travelling we’d arrived at the mall and within it was the theatre. Gradually as we walked towards our destination I began to feel slightly frivolous and brimming with anticipation .As I followed series of human signs I soon came across ingenious posters created by the entire cluster of schools taking part which had further enticed me to glance at the films which had optimistically been strikingly completed.

At long last we’d made it. As soon as I saw a glimpse of the theatre I knew it was going to be out of this world. Furthermore as soon as I’d been seated I realised how comfy and hefty those dream seats were. It was as if I was floating on a cloud. Whilst all these things far expected my expectations I found that the films were equally as good as several commercial and highly funded movies apart from showing greater morals and virtues.

One of the movies I found to be the most valuable was Unity and Diversity which demonstrated that no matter what your ethnicity is you can work, communicate and become best of pals. Another film that surpassed my expectation was a short film by Point England School. It was a Justin Beiber music video re-enactment which featured many young actors aged around six to seven. I also was surprised on how each of the presenter s of many age groups showed no sign of stage fright and showed a lot of courage. What let me down was that not every student from each class was able to take part in their class film.

To the end of my experience I was left with new values and morals to look up to from tons of movies shown. This experience was extremely fun and I definitely yearn to see a second movie festival.
