The Louis Vuitton Hawaii International Film Festival (LVHIFF), now in its 27th year, is one of the premier film festivals in the world with a special focus on new Asia and Pacific Rim cinema. Over the past years, we have increased our profile as an important stop on the American and Asian film festival circuit. Films that have premiered at LVHIFF include Babel; Volver; The Host; Hula Girls; A Bittersweet Life; Brokeback Mountain; The Banquet; Ten Canoes; Kung Fu Hustle; In the Mood for Love; and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. The festival has also featured international celebrities such as Ken Watanabe (2006), Kevin Smith (2006), Kal Penn (2006), Samuel L Jackson (2005), Lee Byung-hun (2005), Maggie Cheung (2004), Zhang Yimou (2004), Quentin Tarantino (1998), Ang Lee (2005, 1997), and Michael Moore (1988).

Filled with insight and discovery, LVHIFF is dedicated to advancing understanding and cultural exchange among the peoples of Asia, the Pacific, and North America. Each year, more than 70,000 attendees throughout Hawaii viscerally experience the sounds and images of filmmaking from around the world. This cultural exchange of ideas, presented through the powerful medium of film, raises the awareness of both our similarities and differences.

LVHIFF is an officially sanctioned film festival of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) — the membership body that determines the Golden Globe Award nominations. The festival is expecting a contingent of thirty members from HFPA to attend the festival this year. The festival is an excellent opportunity for filmmakers to promote their films during the brink of awards season. With such revered film critics as Roger Ebert, Elvis Mitchell, and Donald Richie attending the festival every year, LVHIFF provides filmmakers tremendous exposure. Entertainment Weekly describes the film festival as “a must attend” and Ebert calls it “a point-of-entry festival for new Asian cinema to North America.”

This year’s festival takes place October 18 – 28, 2007 in Honolulu, Hawaii. LVHIFF is also on the neighbor islands. This special program screens on five Hawaiian Islands — The Big Island, Maui, Molokai, Lanai, and Kauai — and is a means to present the film festival to other communities in the state.
