The Haftas

Hafal Wrexham - best film

Rather a hectic weekend so only now getting around to considering Hafal's 2013 "It's a Wrap!" Conference last Thursday in Builth Wells. Quite a day with over 200 present and a vast range of activities including music workshops, Tai Chi, and user and carer rallies. A really successful event thanks to Emma and all the many others who ensured our guests had an informative and fun time.

And then of course there were "The Haftas" - an awards ceremony celebrating the work of filmmakers who took part in this year's Lights! Camera! ACTION! campaign. This involved a quick change for me from Hafal-branded smart(ish) casual to formal black tie in order to hand over the rather classy awards.

Go to our very own channel democratically known as Hafal Telly to see all the films and a short film from the event too which gives some clues about what we'll be up to next year - more about that soon.
