Pacifika: New York Hawaiian Film Fest Accepting Entries

The 5th Annual Pacifika: New York Hawaiian Film Festival, which will take place in NYC on May 18-20, 2007, is accepting film submissions until Feb. 1. Click here for the entry form.

Presented by the Hawaii Cultural Foundation (HCF), in collaboration with New York University's Tisch School of the Arts Graduate Department of Film and Television, Pacifika integrates film and cultural demonstrations to explore questions of history, human rights, and identity of Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders. The festival celebrates the accomplishments of indigenous film and video artists by introducing them to New York audiences.

HCF is a non-profit organization dedicated to perpetuating Hawaiian culture outside of Hawaii. Founded in 1997, HCF provides native Hawaiians, former Hawaii residents, and those interested in Hawaii in New York City and the tri-state area a means of learning and celebrating Hawaiian traditions through music, dance, art, film and other forms of cultural expression.

For more information, go to www.pacifika.org, or contact Mary Berman at pacifika@hcfnyc.org or 808-941-2905.
