I HEART HIFF continues with special advance screening of SEARCHING on August 28

By HIFF | August 21, 2018

August is I HEART HIFF! We are celebrating our amazing HIFF Ohana members by presenting FREE advance screenings this month — We exclusively screened THE MEG and CRAZY RICH ASIANS earlier this month — And also offering a 10% discount all month long for HIFF Ohana membership.

But, August isn’t over yet, and HIFF is proud to announce that we are presenting a special advance screening of the Sundance winning SEARCHING, the new techno suspense thriller starring John Cho as a desperate father who is searching for his missing teenage daughter by delving into her social media to find clues of her whereabouts before it’s too late. This film won the NEXT Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival and has thrilled audiences with its innovative take on classic Hitchcockian genre tropes, creating a gripping film set in our social media and online footprint.

This FREE advance screening is exclusive to current HIFF Ohana members (on a first-come, first-serve basis).


Synopsis: After David Kim (John Cho)'s 16-year-old daughter goes missing, a local investigation is opened and a detective is assigned to the case. But 37 hours later and without a single lead, David decides to search the one place no one has looked yet, where all secrets are kept today: his daughter's laptop. In a hyper-modern thriller told via the technology devices we use every day to communicate, David must trace his daughter's digital footprints before she disappears forever.

When: Tuesday, August 28, 2018
Doors open at 6:00pm / Screening starts at 7pm

Where: Consolidated Ward 16 (Map & Directions)

This screening is open to current HIFF Ohana members on a priority basis.
