A film set in Hawai’i, The Descendants, is currently topping the list of contenders for Best Film in the upcoming Academy Awards in February. Outside the glare of that spotlight, Hawai’i’s homegrown film industry is energized and coming soon to a television near you. HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports.
The Short List, five stories by five different Hawai’i directors, begins January 23rd , 7:30 on KFIVE. The first episode will be “One Evening in the Blue Light Bar and Grill” written by Cedric Yamanaka.
