April is here, which means it’s that time again … HIFF is back.
HIFF, short for Hawaii International Film Festival, showcases films from around the world twice a year here in the islands. April marks the 2011 Spring Showcase, hosted at the Regal Dole Cannery Stadium. The film festival runs for a week (April 1-7) and boasts a wide range of foreign films from Australia to Turkey. And due to the high residency of Asian Americans here in Hawaii, there is usually a higher demand for films from Asia. There is a total of 29 films being showcased for the spring festival, and 16 of those films are from Asian countries (Korea, China, Japan,Thailand and India).
