HIFF MATTERS TO HAWAI‘I

HIFF’s Mission:

As the vanguard forum of international cinematic achievement in the Asia-Pacific region, Hawai‘i International Film Festival (HIFF) endeavors to recognize new and emerging talent, promote career development and original collaborations through innovative education programs, and facilitate dynamic cultural exchange through the cinema arts.

HAWAI‘I INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

For 40 years, HIFF has been featuring world premiere screenings, panel discussions, industry events, virtual reality exhibitions, and gala celebrations, HIFF acts as a creative pipeline to the Pacific, showcasing new and emerging talent from Asia and the Pacific Islands. HIFF promotes career development and original collaborations through education and media literacy programs, and celebrates achievements of legendary directors, producers, writers, and actors. HIFF also holds the distinction of being the only statewide independent film festival in the United States. It has long been regarded as the gateway for Asian film into the American market and the world’s foremost festival dedicated to the theme of “East meets West.”

HIFF is steadfast in our commitment to celebrate the work of emerging filmmakers and artists from across the world and here at home in Hawai‘i. In partnership with the Vilcek Foundation, we celebrate the work of immigrant filmmakers and artists in building the cultural landscape of the United States through our New American Perspectives program.
Our program remains the premier destination for Asian-Pacific filmmaking, exhibiting the work of local filmmakers in our Made in Hawai’i and Pacific Showcase.

As a HIFF donor, your financial support goes directly to pay for the venue rentals, screening fees, filmmaker travel, technical upgrades, and payroll for our extremely hard working and dedicated staff, interns and festival volunteers, all of which operate this 41 year long tradition of presenting Local and International cinema in Hawai‘i.

YEAR ROUND PROGRAMMING

HIFF has long been dedicated to the promotion, education and sustainability of the local film and cinema arts industry in Hawai‘i. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we established various streaming and on-demand programs which bring the latest international  films and film festival content to your home. We look forward to welcoming audiences back to the theaters later this year. 

As a HIFF donor, you allow us to continue to innovate in order to keep up with the global film industry in finding new ways to showcase the best of independent and international cinema, as well as maintain film-arts appreciation for local audiences.

HAWAIIAN & PACIFIC ISLANDS FILMMAKERS

HIFF is unique in discovering features, documentaries and shorts from Asia made by Asians, films about the Pacific made by Pacific Islanders, and films made by Hawai’i filmmakers that present Hawai’i in a culturally accurate way.
Our program remains the premier destination for Asian-Pacific filmmaking, exhibiting the work of local filmmakers in our Made in Hawai’i and Pacific Showcase.
