Made in Hawai‘i Film Festival Seeks Submissions
Submissions open in February for the 2nd annual Made in Hawaiʻi Film Festival, happening on Hawaiʻi Island in June 2019.
The independent film festival brings a weekend long lineup of Hawaiʻi-made content to the Hilo Palace Theater on June 1 and 2, with a follow up “Best of Fest” evening at Kona’s Aloha Theater on June 14.
Submissions open Feb. 1 and run through March 15, 2019. Categories include feature-length and short narrative films, documentaries, music videos and web series. To qualify, projects must have at least 50% of principal photography shot within the state of Hawaiʻi, completed no earlier than January 2016.
“We’re thrilled to be bringing the festival back to Hawaiʻi Island for a full weekend run, plus a follow up in south Kona,” said festival Executive Director Zoe Eisenberg. “We can’t wait to see what Hawaiʻi-based filmmakers have been working on this past year.”
