Hawaii International Film Festival

East meets West

Hits discovered here. Movies like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, The Piano, and Shall We Dance? all had U.S. premieres at the Hawaii International Film Festival (HIFF).

Located at the crossroads of the Pacific, HIFF is truly international in spirit. It brings together filmmakers and film lovers from across Asia, the Pacific, and North America. It strives to recognize new talent, regardless of nationality or language.

In addition to the films themselves, seminars, workshops, and red-carpet receptions offer face time with the people in front of and behind the camera.   

HIFF opens in Honolulu, and across the state, in the fall.
