All you movie fans, HIFF is back!
The 43rd Hawaii International Film Festival, hosted by Halekulani, will be place on Oahu from October 12 to 22 and in the Neighbour Islands from Nov. 5.
The festival will screen 186 films, including action-packed, dramatic, and documentary shorts as well as feature-length features.
HIFF will feature international films, exclusive premieres, filmmaker talks, and networking events.
The event was initially a project of the University of Hawaii at Manoa’s East-West Centre, a learning and research facility.
HIFF has established itself as the Pacific’s top film festival and attracts more than 50,000 moviegoers from all around the world each year.
You should watch “Island Cowgirls + The Ilima Lady,” “Made in Hawaii Short Stories,” “Reel Wahine of Hawaii,” among other Hawaii-made feature documentaries.
This year’s installment of “The State of 808 Indie Filmmaking,” “Hometown Heroes,” is directed by Kolby Akamu Moser and Nainoa Langer and focuses on the films Makawalu and Merve and the Miracles.
Makawalu is evidence of the Kanaka Maoli’s talent for storytelling and filming.
At its annual Awards Gala, HIFF annually awards a number of prizes to both established and up-and-coming filmmakers.
