Air, Land & Sea

Where the air, land and sea lure prominent visitors from around the world and our local residents feel nothing short of devout passion for our waters—HIFF is perfectly poised to bring to life this signature program dedicated to global issues of environmental conservation. Founded in 2016 with the goal to generate awareness around man-made environmental issues, this section fosters a deeper appreciation for our planet, and allow filmmakers and experts to share information and discuss solutions to the global problems which face us all today.
