HFF 2022 Recap

After the fully online edition of the festival in 2021, the HFF team leant into the challenge of putting on a hybrid festival in 2022, hosting both online and in person events between May 6 and 21st.
The 2022 Festival Theme ‘Coming Home’ acknowledged the collective social struggles endured during the Covid pandemic. Our creative team dug into the look and textures of a typical Vincentian home for this imagery as a means to celebrate what is close, safe, relatable and what is intrinsically ours.

Coming Home Theme Imagery

Fashion is Payne

Our 2022 shirt was something special. Inspired by the famous ‘doily’; a fixture in every traditional Caribbean home, this shirt was the result of a collaboration with Vincentian fashion designer Jeremy Payne, also know as ‘Fashion Is Payne’.

Post Screening Q&A
