HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -
`Ohina: The Short Film Showcase was created to support Hawaii's numerous and diverse independent filmmakers, and provide them with a chance to exhibit their films to the local community. For more than a decade and a half, nearly a thousand acclaimed filmmakers, producers, directors and guests have come together to enjoy and celebrate short films created by students, amateurs and professionals alike. This year, the historic Hawaii Theatre is proud to play host to the gathering.
The 'Ohina Short Film Showcase pays tribute to films that were made in Hawaii, tell a story about Hawaii, or were made by resident(s) of Hawaii. Each of the films selected to be included in the 2016 'Ohina Short Film Showcase were screened by an all-volunteer, independent board of industry-related professionals for this distinct honor. For 2016, 'Ohina enlisted the talents of Marvel Studios Executive Producer Nate Moore to participate in the judging.
Nate was recently a judge for the `Ohina Short Film Showcase and held a Q and A session on September 3rd. He spoke about the films he saw at the showcase and shared his experiences working on Marvel movies as well as the upcoming Marvel movie he’s currently working on.
