Hello again! I am very excited to be providing press coverage for the Hawaii International Film Festival (HIFF) as it features a very unique perspective on film making while focusing on movies that come from all over the world with a heavy influence from the Asia/Pacific regions. After perusing this year's festival schedule, I have hand picked a selection of the films that I personally would not want to miss and I hope you have a chance to enjoy them as well.
