Hawaii International Film Festival
October 30 through November 9, 2014
The Hawaii International Film Festival is one of many Oahu events that take place near top Honolulu Hotels such as Courtyard Marriott Waikiki Beach. The Hawaii International Film Festival began as a modest event. Just 7 films were shown that first year, but attendance was respectable at about 5,000. In the 33 years since, this Oahu event has grown to include 150 films and now welcomes 70,000 attendees each year. Feature films, documentaries, and shorts are among the offerings.
While the films are the stars of the Hawaii International Film Festival, they are not the only reason to attend this Oahu Event. The Creative Lab features tools to help writers and filmmakers hone their crafts. Some offerings of the Creative Lab are the Writer’s Accelerator, Actor’s Workshop, and New Media Panel & Screening. Educational programs aimed at students can help to cultivate the next generation of filmmakers. Examples of educational programs are the Guest Filmmaker Program, and the Student Showcase.
Tickets to individual screenings cost $12 with discounted admission for military, students, and seniors. Several free screening are also offered throughout the Oahu Event. Tickets to some of the screenings will sell out, so those planning to attend are encouraged to book their tickets online in advance.
