Hairouna Film Festival launched in 2019 as a free, outdoor, travelling film festival that brought inspiring, educational and entertaining Caribbean films to the communities of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

A screening of 'Flight' in Barrouallie, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, HFF 2019


We were lucky in 2019 to have the internationally renowned Vincentian photographer Nadia Huggins on our team as Art Director. Nadia was instrumental in helping HFF 2019 become a success. Through her connections with North Eleven projection. HFF found an amazing projection partner. North Eleven are a phenomenal projection company based in Trinidad and Tobago and they specialise in outdoor projection using mapping and rear projection. Because of their generous support the festival travelled and screened films in 8 different communities across St. Vincent and the Grenadines: Calliaqua, Ratho Mill, Sharpes, Barrouallie, Sandy Bay, Villa, Bequia and at the Belle Isle Correctional Facility.


This model was chosen in to create the opportunity for Vincentians across the island to be able to experience Caribbean cinema, many for the first time.
