MISSION & OBJECTIVE
It is the mission of the Honolulu Film Awards to recognize the finest independent cinema the world has to offer while helping to advance the careers of promising filmmakers by providing a platform through which their talents can be recognized.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Aloha and welcome to the Honolulu Film Awards. The 2013 Honolulu Film Awards will be held May 4, 2013 along the pristine shores of the world-famous Waikiki Beach at the beautiful and world-famous Hilton Hawaiian Village Beach Resort and Spa.

The Honolulu Film Awards is a crossroads of the world, bridging the gap between East and West and held annually on the beautiful island of Oahu, Hawaii. Surrounded by the sparkling Pacific and spectacular scenery, the Honolulu Film Awards recognizes outstanding achievement in filmmaking from around the world. It is our mission to recognize and celebrate the finest independent cinema the world has to offer while helping to advance the careers of promising filmmakers by providing a platform through which their talents can be recognized.

Known as "The Gathering Isle", Oahu is a very special place, full of aloha spirit and splendor. The Honolulu Film Awards is honored to call this incredible island home where we merge the magic of film with the magic of the islands!

Each year, at our elegant and upscale Awards Ceremony and Filmmakers Reception, we honor the best from around the world in several competition categories including Feature Films, Documentaries, Short Films, Foreign Films, Hawaiian Films, Action Sports Films, Music Videos, Experimental Films, Television Pilots, Environmental Films, and more.

The top films from each category will be screened in a traditional film festival format for the public.

Awards are presented to deserving filmmakers and screenwriters in four main competition tiers along with top prizes for Best of Category distinctions and Special Jury Awards. Awards will also be announced publicly and to the press at this time.

Following the awards presentation, filmmakers and guests, which include producers, directors, writers, publicists, media, and other industry professionals, spend the weekend forging business connections and lasting friendships in the serene and relaxing atmosphere of Waikiki.

Mahalo Nui Loa and we look forward to seeing you in the islands!
