"It is crucial that we continue our quest of highlighting important social and humanitarian issues around the globe by giving a voice to the voiceless through the visual medium. We must support filmmakers who, against all odds, are able to memorialize those important moments in human history. Therefore, the Hollywood Film Festival is totally committed to the documentary genre by showcasing both feature length and short documentaries at the HOLLYWOOD DOCUMENTARY FILM FESTIVAL," festival founder Carlos de Abreu said.
