2007 - It’s Show Time
The 2007 HIFA was themed It's Show Time. HIFA said of theme on their website:
HIFA 2007 a time to S+how that artistic expression has meaning and purpose for a community that is facing challenging balancing acts every day; a time to Show that in Zimbabwe in 2007, the arts express our desire to make life better for ourselves as individuals and as a diverse community; a time to Show that HIFA and artists recognise the paradoxes faced by Zimbabweans each day as we step out on to our own personal tightrope; most of all, it is a time to Show that creativity surrounds us and makes us smile each day - HIFA 2007 is a celebration of all the small-scale acts of creative heroism that give magic, enchantment, existentialist ideals to ordinary things.
