Angkor Wat International Film Festival Feb. 20February 17, 2016, 12:04 PM HST · Updated February 17, 12:36 PM 0 Comments
The Angkor Wat International Film Festival Fundraiser will be held on Saturday, Feb. 20, 2016, at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s McCoy Studio Theater.
The festival will offer an amazing range of films covering underwater mysteries and the impact of global warming to the unimaginable talents of big-wave thrill riders to the iconic mastery of the classic filmmaker, Alfred Hitchcock, all in 3D—glasses included.
The fundraiser supports the efforts of the film festival, a traveling event devoted to showing films in areas where films are not readily accessible.
This year, the festival will also be screening 3D films to many villagers in Cambodia who have never seen a movie on the big screen.
The Angkor Wat International Film Festival’s mission is to preserve culture and the environment by screening documentary films from around the world.
