FYI Films debuted the film, ALL FOR NOTHING, created by youth at Hawaii Youth Correctional Facility (HYCF), during the 2015 Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival late last month. The film was a tremendous success with audience members and FYI supporters commenting on the profound, yet humorous message the film conveyed.
Following the screening, FYI hosted a reception for festival goers, supporters and family to learn more, enjoy great food, and engage with those in attendance.
A special thanks to FYI alum and board member Davis Herrera Landeros; Davion FYI alum; and FYI alum and one of the stars in ALL FOR NOTHING, Adrian Kelly, for talking about their experiences while providing highlights of what they are doing now.
Thank you to FYI Advisory Board members Thelma Hechanova (Guam) and Kim Coco Iwamoto (Hawaii) for attending and making remarks.
Finally, much appreciation to all of the FYI supporters that made it out to the festival. Without your continued support, none of this would be possible.
We have several things in the pipeline so stay tuned for more very soon!
