    30th Anniversary of HIFF 

    It’s that time of year again.

    The Hawaii International Film Festival is celebrating it’s 30th anniversary and they’ll be doing it for the next 10 days. 10 days of the most diverse, most unique film experiences you can get anywhere in the world will be on display. Since it’s inception, HIFF has become a destination festival for many movie goers and a definite launching point for many films, as was evidenced by last year’s World Premiere of Princess Ka’iulani.

    This year’s schedule is no different, featuring tons of Asian films, anime pieces, a growing number of Polynesian and New Zealand based films, and documentaries. I’m definitely looking forward to checking out the two Donnie Yen films in the festival this year: IP MAN 2 and Legend of the Fist. Also, there’s an amazing local shirt film competition that you can check out online (http://hiff.org/localfilmaward). Shout out to Fobby Valentino and the WADALIFE crew.

    HIFF starts today and runs until October 24th. Movies will be shown at the Dole Cannery theatres, unless otherwise noted. For more info and to purchase tickets, check out http://www.HIFF.org

    HIFF Tickets on SALE NOW! 

    For those that didn’t know, HIFF tickets go on sale today to the general public.  Both online sales and box office sales for the dope indie flicks start at 11am, so you still got some time to look through the Spring Showcase catalog and pour over which films to watch.  And also which days to call in sick to work.

    I know which one I’m going to watch, and it’s not even one listed on the printed catalog.

    MACHINE GIRL!

    If you guys don’t know about this… the basic premise is that a normal girl witnesses her brother get murdered by the heir to the Yakuza family… and she goes out to exact revenge.  There’s guns… violence… a drill bra… blood splatter…

    … did I mention a drill bra?

    Anyway, check out the trailer:

    This is showing Sunday night, April 20, at 9pm.  You darn right I’m gonna be there.

    Anyway, to get tickets to the extravaganza, click this link for specific instructions.
