Big Island Film Festival Seeking Entries

Big Island Film Festival is now accepting films for it’s 2009 festival, May 14-17.  Both feature and short narrative films are being accepted.  We do not accept documentary films.  We try hard to showcase films shot in Hawaii or by filmmakers in Hawaii.  We also give Golden Honu Awards to the Best Hawaiian Feature Film and Best Hawaiian Short Film.  We give a 25% discount to filmmakers from Hawaii or films shot in Hawaii, if directly submitted to us.  In 2007 we were selected by MovieMaker Magazine as one of “Twenty Film Festival Worth the Entry fee”.  Attached you find Submission Forms and Rules.  Find out why Big Island Film Festival is a very special event which celebrates the independent narrative filmmaker.  You can visit our website
