I HEART HIFF Screening of THE MEG starring Jason Statham and Li Bingbing on August 2

By HIFF | July 20, 2018

I HEART HIFF is upon us! Every August, the Hawaii International Film Festival celebrates and honors the amazing HIFF Ohana, the core membership body of the organization, by presenting free and exclusive screenings to HIFF Ohana members (space availability only). It’s a way for HIFF to give back to our more valued and loyal patrons, and is also a head’s up that the upcoming Fall Festival is coming up right around the corner.

This year, however, we are doing something different and are screening several films throughout August! So stay tuned, follow us on social media, and be the first in line to check out these special advance screenings of some of the most highly anticipated films of the year.

We kick I HEART HIFF off with an advance screening of THE MEG based on the action bestseller and starring Jason Statham, Li Bingbing and Cliff Curtis!

Synopsis: In the film, a deep-sea submersible—part of an international undersea observation program—has been attacked by a massive creature, previously thought to be extinct, and now lies disabled at the bottom of the deepest trench in the Pacific…with its crew trapped inside. With time running out, expert deep sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) is recruited by a visionary Chinese oceanographer (Winston Chao), against the wishes of his daughter Suyin (Li Bingbing), to save the crew—and the ocean itself—from this unstoppable threat: a pre-historic 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon. What no one could have imagined is that, years before, Taylor had encountered this same terrifying creature. Now, teamed with Suyin, he must confront his fears and risk his own life to save everyone trapped below…bringing him face to face once more with the greatest and largest predator of all time.

When: Thursday, August 2, 2018
Doors open at 6:30pm / Screening starts at 7:30pm
