The Honolulu African American Film Festival presents films each February that help to eliminate this imbalance. The Honolulu African American Film Festival takes place every February at the Doris Duke Theatre at the Honolulu Museum of Art, Honolulu's only art house theater and premier platform for independent and international film in Hawai'i.
Our mission is to celebrate African American cinema and the African cultural Diaspora. Our film festival is a month-long event that showcases a diverse collection of films from around the world - all reinforcing positive images and dispelling negative stereotypes. Our six-member committee works closely with Museum film curator Abigal Algar to bring together many diverse cultures and lifestyles of Hawaii, and initiate dialogue on the important issues of our times.
The Honolulu African American Film Festival provides a platform for Black filmmakers, screenwriters, and actors to present their art. Emerging talents and established artists are able to contribute to the cinematic legacy of African Americans. We accept submissions from filmmakers around the world who are of African descent, as well as others, who cinematically represent the African Diaspora.
