Showdown in Chinatown Championship

The popular Showdown in Chinatown filmmaking event is turning one! To celebrate, event organizers are hosting a FREE Review this Friday, 11/3 from 6-8pm at NextDoor (43 N. Hotel St.) to showcase winning films from the past year. At the end of the Review, the Showdown in Chinatown Championship challenge will be announced. This time, scrappy local filmmakers will have a full week to shoot their films, instead of the usual 24 hours.

The Championship screening party will be held in conjunction with the Island Independent Film Festival (formerly known as Cinema Paradise, and before that, as the Honolulu Underground Film Festival, and sponsored in part by the Hawaii Film Office) on Saturday, 11/11 at 7pm at NextDoor. The winning film will get $1000!
