Pacific Islanders in Communications: An Integral Part of HIFF


Four more days until our screening of Puamana at HIFF and we’re getting excited (October 13 6PM Dole Cannery Free)! In continuing our blog series celebrating 33 years of HIFF, we would like to highlight films sponsored by Pacific Islanders In Communications (PIC).  The mission of Pacific Islanders in Communications (PIC) is to support, advance, and develop Pacific Island media content and talent that results in a deeper understanding of Pacific Island history, culture, and contemporary challenges” (from PIC`s Website click here to see it).  PIC has been supporting Hawaiʻi and other Pacific film makers since their beginning; projects may not have seen their screenings if it weren’t for PIC.  PIC is also one of our collections that holds important treasures from around the Pacific!  We are excited about the collection and the lineup of films PIC is sponsoring giving Hawaiʻi and the Pacific a strong presence at HIFF; go see these films! Below is a list of films sponsored by PIC click on the picture to go to PICʻs website…
