This year’s event celebrates accomplishments by local filmmakers across multiple genres and styles, including documentaries, narrative shorts, web series, feature films, and experimental cinema.

The event features screenings, but also speakers, filmaker Q&A sessions, and industry panel discussions where attendees can learn about the artists’ inspiration and the practical matters of the film industry in Hawaii. The MIHFF mission is to spotlight cinema being produced in and about the Hawaiian Islands, in an effort to support and grow Hawaii’s independent arts.

Big Island filmmakers Malina Fagan and Lynn Pelletier discuss their film Reefs at Risk at MIHFF 2018.

A full lineup of the festival’s exciting roster of showings is available at for both Hilo and Kona. A Hilo Festival Pass for just $30 provides access to all screenings and panel discussions with local filmmakers. A Kona access pass can be had for just $16, with individual screening tickets also available for purchase.

Tickets and festival passes can be purchased online, or you can reserve your tickets by calling the Hilo Palace Theater at (808) 934-7010; the Aloha Theater at (808) 322-9924; or simply visit for all the details!
