The 34th Hawaii Film Festival (HIFF) will be held on October 30 to November 9. Haemoo has been selected to be one of the ten Halekulani Golden Orchid Award Nominees.
The Golden Orchid Award (presented by Halekulani) is bestowed upon the narrative and documentary films that best express artistic and technical excellence and promote cross-cultural understanding. Like the rare endemic orchids of our native Hawaii, these awards recognize singular achievements amid collective beauty. Each nominated film furthers the Hawaii International Film Festival mandate to entertain, enlighten and empower. Our international jury will select the films that articulate this manifesto consistent with the cross-pollination of words, ideas and images that comprise the kinetic and visceral power of film.
