Manaiakalani Film Festival 2014

Knowing that today was the Manaiakalani Film Festival filled my stomach with butterflies. I quickly got ready, as the thought of attending the Film Festival filled my mind. As I arrived at school I darted into the class, with anticipation and excitement. “When will we be going?”, I thought to myself. All of the senior students eventually got the news that we’ll be having morning tea early, so that we can make our session at about 11:30 or 12:00.

A couple of hours later it was time for the senior block to leave and go to the Event Cinemas. Three fairly old buses pulled up outside of the school as the bus drivers waited patiently, for all the students and teachers to hop on. I automatically hopped on any bus, eager to get to the Cinemas. As we got closer and closer to Sylvia Park on the bus, excitement rapidly filled me. Suddenly the bus stopped, and I heard Mr Barks announce that we had arrived at Sylvia Park. I speedily jumped out of my seat and headed for the door.

As I began walking through the entrance of the Event Cinemas, different schools from the Manaiakalani Film Festival Cluster were walking out of the door. I strolled excitedly along down the walkway, and made my way through the doors and into Cinema 3. At the moment that I walked up the steps, I scanned rapidly for an adequate place to sit. It had to be a place that I could easily see and is comfortable for me. Eventually after browsing for a great seat I found one, right on the middle. As I sat down quickly, eager to watch the Film Festival Movies, I waited patiently.

Suddenly the lights went dim and the movie began. At first a person that attended Tamaki College introduced the Manaiakalani Film Festival, then it went straight into the first movie which was our class’s one. Our movie contained kindness and caring for each other. Henry and Mua were our presenters for the movie, and as they began saying their last lines, everyone in the Cinema clapped and cheered. After the movie had finished playing, a huge ripple of applause spreaded across the cinema.

My absolute favourite movie was “The Bowl Cut”. There are many reasons why I adore this video, my number one reason is because it’s entertaining and funny. Especially when they explain the process of how to do a bowl cut and the materials needed, their voices were very amusing. Reason number 2 is that they had really good actors, you can’t make a movie without superior actors. Overall I truly enjoyed the Manaiakalani Film Festival. Hopefully there’ll be another one next year, because I’m really looking forward to seeing some new movies.
