Presented by Hawaii News Now, each year HIFF gives out the coveted “Audience Choice Award” as reflected by our festival attendees. Who’s taking home the Tiffany & Co. designed trophy this year? Inside scoop from the box office says there’s a lot of pre-screening buzz around SUMMER PASTURE, THE TEMPEST, WOOCHI, BOY, BODYGUARDS & ASSASSINS, and THE HOUSEMAID.
Ballots will be distributed during the first screenings only of every eligible film. No pen, pencils, or I.D. required, just your superior cinephile taste. Now this part is important: Tear along the bottom of the ballot on a range of 1 (terrible) to 5 (excellent) — I know, super high-tech, but I mean, this is HIFF 2010.
Past winners include PRECIOUS: BASED ON THE NOVEL “PUSH” BY SAPPHIRE, DEPARTURES, THE HOST, and THE MAORI MERCHANT OF VENICE.
