Our volunteers are the backbone of HIFF! With the help of our amazing volunteers, we are able to bring together the film industry, local filmmakers, international stars, first-time actors, and film enthusiasts from all walks of life for our cinema and educational programming. HIFF promises to be an exciting and memorable experience.
Mahalo nui loa to our amazing team of volunteers! From our street team, to our special events team, and to the true champions of the festival – our theater team; thank you for making HIFF42 a huge success! Because of the heart that you brought, behind the scenes and in front, we were able to welcome film enthusiasts and filmmakers, locally and from around the world, into the wonderful experience that is Hawai‘i International Film Festival! We look forward to making more memories with you in the future! Please feel free to share your favorite HIFF42 memories with us on Instagram and Facebook or @HiffVolunteers!
