Save-the-Date: HIFF40 Awards Celebration & Brunch Pau Hana on November 29

By HIFF News | November 22, 2020

Join us for a reimagined HIFF Awards Gala! While we can’t safely gather at the red carpet this year to honor our filmmakers, HIFF board, honorees, juried film winners, and Hawai‘i’s finest, we invite you to join us for a virtual rendition of this celebration.

Dress in your best and grab brunch (order through Bite Squad this weekend and use the promo code HIFF40 and get your delivery fees waived) with us as we recap HIFF40, announce our award winners, and celebrate this year’s international achievement in cinema! Festivities start at 11:30am HST on November 29, where we will announce the Made in Hawai‘i and Best Short Film jury winners, formally honor our special honorees and see their acceptance speeches, and provide a quick recap of the 40-year history of HIFF.

Then, stay for the live Zoom “brunch pau hana,” online, where we can all mingle, talk story and reminisce about the many films, panel discussions, and the like that unspooled during the unprecedented 40th edition. Expect surprise guests, a couple of music performances, and more on the final day of HIFF40!

Afterwards, we encourage audiences to watch the rest of the HIFF films online, or head out to Consolidated Ward 16 to see the last of our in-person screenings of select films from our MADE IN HAWAI‘I lineup.
