What a year for film throughout the world! We have chosen some of the very best and have assembled a spectacular selection of films, special events, and seminars for you. I am particularly proud of our new “Youth in Film” section of Hawaii student films that is a must see. We are honored to welcome LOUIS VUITTON HAWAII as the title sponsor of our 24th fall Film Festival and thank them for their wonderful support.
