Hawaii Int'l Film Fest Announces Line-Up

The 26th Louis Vuitton Hawaii International Film Festival recently announced its film, speaker, and seminar line-up. Highlights include talks with Kevin Smith, Ken Watanabe, and Matthew Libatique; at least 6 feature films by Asian Americans/Canadians; and a slew of Hawaii independent films. Jurors for the Golden Orchid Awards are SXSW film fest producer Matt Dentler; former NY Times film critic, visiting Harvard lecturer, and radio commentator Elvis Mitchell; and actor Kal Penn ("Kumar" of "Harold & Kumar...").

More from me on the fest later. Here's some more info on it in the meantime:
