From the producer of Los Angeles, New York, Toronto, Austin, Hawaii, and Euro International Short Film Festivals comes the 5th annual Hawaii International Short Films Festival at the Waikiki Aquarium.

Last year’s Hawaii Shorts opened at the Waikiki Aquarium for an evening of short films under the stars! Festival attendees picnic on blankets as they enjoyed films that included animation and family comedies along with thought provoking documentaries. Some of the films featured last year were:

  • Stars – 5 minutes, from San Francisco, Animation
  • The End Game – 30 minutes, Canada, Ocean Documentary
  • The Sleeping Beauty – 6 minutes, London, Dance
  • Lemonade Mafia – 7 minutes, Los Angeles, Kids/Family Comedy
  • The Story of L’Homme Cirque – 30 minutes, Switzerland, Silent Movie Comedy

We believe that short form cinema and its creators should have their own premier film festival in Hawaii deserving similar recognition given to the feature film and its creators. The heart of the festival is the quality and scope of extraordinary film programming.
