THANKS!!

I just wanted to say thanks to all who attended the festival this year. We had a great time and I hope you did as well. HIFF is over but we are still here getting ready for Oscars and Spring 2010.  I look forward to seeing you all at our next event.

Thanks for your dedication to the festival and a shout out to all who volunteered the festival could not happen without all your hard work.
