We’ve just received word that native Hawaiian filmmaker Ty Sanga’s short film STONES was selected for the Indigenous Shorts Showcase at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival (January 20-30, Park City Utah) . HIFF had the world premiere of this short film in 2009, and it went on to win the Best Short award at the 2010 Maui Film Festival . STONES will be the first Hawaiian-language film to screen at the Sundance Film Festival.  Exposure at Sundance can do a lot for a filmmaker’s career, and it’s a notoriously hard festival to get a film into. We wish Ty Sanga the best of luck at Sundance!
