Thursday, January 1, 1970 -

Join us for the inaugural screening of the 'Ohina Short Film Showcase's incredible independent films from Hawaii.
 
Since 1999, 'Ohina has been Hawaii's largest annual short film festival dedicated to gathering and presenting original works by students, amateurs, and professional filmmakers. Although entries can come from around the world, there is only one requirement: a creative relationship to the Hawaiian Islands.
 
The screening will be followed by a conversation about the films with Gerard Elmore of `Ohina and Alika Maikau, filmmaker of Mauka to Makai.
