It’s that time of the year again.

HIFF (Hawaii International Film Festival) will be having it’s 12th Annual Spring Showcase next month…

BUT! The lineup for the Festival has just been announced and tickets officially go on sale on March 23rd.

The lineup will feature over 20 acclaimed and award-winning films from around the world.  You know the Japanese and South Korean films will get some love, but don’t forget the strong batch of film from India, now that Slumdog Millionaire got mad love from the Academy this past month.

Some films of note:

The Sky Crawlers: Mamoru Oshii’s (Ghost In The Shell) latest masterpiece about futuristic air battles.

Ichi: The female version of Blind Swordsman Zatoichi, starring Haruka Ayase, returning to HIFF after her amazing turn in last year’s favorite CYBORG SHE.

Ghajini: The Hindi version of Christopher Nolan’s MEMENTO. Just watch the trailer, it looks EPIC.

Wushu: Produced by Jackie Chan.  Starring Sammo Hung. Featuring a cast full of Wushu graduates and Martial Arts masters.  Need I say more?

Tickets will be available starting March 23rd at the HIFF Box Office at Dole Cannery.
