BUILDING BRIDGES: The EWC and the HIFF
Jeanette Paulson Hereniko
In 1981, the East-West Center launched the Hawaii International Film Festival (HIFF). Learn how the Center helped with the inception of a program that introduced American audiences to Asia Pacific cinema, filmmakers, and scholars.
Jeannette Paulson Hereniko has over 40 years of experience in the Asia Pacific film industry as a film festival director, distributer and film producer. She started the Hawaii International Film Festival while working at the East West Center (1980 to 1990) and served as HIFF’s Founding Director from 1981 to 1996.
A brief business meeting will precede the program in order to elect new members of the FEWC Board of Directors for 2018-2019.
