At this time of year, the Hawaii International Film Festival would usually be gearing up to fill theaters. Instead, HIFF and the entire global film business are figuring out how to do festivals in your home.

The Hawaiʻi Internation Film Festival (HIFF) opened last week, and I was curious as to what some of my favorite local film makers are listening to. So tonight is episode 1 of my HPR + HIFF collab. The idea is to feature the music that some of my favorite local film makers are currently vibing.

After World War II ended in the Pacific, anthropologists described up to several hundred semi-religious organizations that had sprung up in New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, New Caledonia, Fiji and Vanuatu.  Called “cargo cults,” these believers sought ways to continue delivery of wartime goods and supplies.  HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports on a Hawai‘i International Film Festival showing that focuses on what could be the last surviving cargo cult.

   Hawai‘i movie audiences have a reputation for being knowledgeable, with an appetite for films that has been cultivated by the Hawai‘i International Film Festival over the past 35 years.  HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports that this year, an effort has begun to develop local critics and writers who can help shape and expand the film scene in the islands.

The Hawai‘i International Film Festival continues through November 22nd.   For a full schedule with links, Hawai‘i International Film Festival
