For over 45 years, SIFF has been bringing people together to discover films from around the world that enrich and entertain—transporting audiences so they can gain new perspectives, inspiration and understanding. We are dedicated to fostering a community that is more informed, aware, and alive through the collective experience of film. As the vanguard forum of international cinematic achievement in the Asia-Pacific region, Hawaii International Film Festival HIFF endeavors to recognize new and emerging talent, promote career development and original collaborations through innovative education programs, and facilitate dynamic cultural exchange through the cinema arts. The Festival experience cultivates an appreciation for the arts, encourages active, discerning viewing, and stimulates lively discussion among peers, families, and the film community. The mission of the Victoria Film Festival is to expose our community to a wide range of ideas and lifestyles through year-round presentation of film, video and new media.
