The 22nd Annual HIFF Spring Showcase presented by Halekulani is here! Taking place at the Regal Dole Cannery Theaters in Honolulu, the Spring Showcase is HIFF’s annual mini-festival, showcasing some of the best Spring season films from across the globe.
Like the main festival in November, the HIFF Spring Showcase is an annual “mini-festival” that presents a broad spectrum of film festival hits, advance screenings of upcoming indie film releases and will include 32 films from 13 countries.
New this year are four special programming spotlights:
Spring Hits: The latest films generating great buzz from major festivals like the just concluded Sundance Film Festival, as well as Toronto, Busan, and Berlin. These premieres provide Hawaiʻi’s cineastes with a first-look opportunity of what will be shaping the indie and award-winning film releases to come out in the latter half of 2019.
JapanFEST: Japanophiles unite! Here is your one stop source for the latest in Japanese cinema with eight films that showcase why HIFF audiences flock to Japanese films and continually make them the most popular films at the Festival.
KoreaFEST: Five films from South Korea highlight why the country is a formidable cinematic force, dominate the box-office and run the gamut of historical fiction to zany comedies with ease and expert craftsmanship. The Hallyu wave is very much still alive!
PacificFOCUS: An extension of the Fall Festival’s Pacific Showcase, the Spring Showcase continues this program silo to present the latest works about and from the First Peoples of the Pacific. Two films in this section just premiered at Sundance and will be having their Hawaiʻi premieres here.
