The Hawaiʻi Internation Film Festival (HIFF) opened last week, and I was curious as to what some of my favorite local film makers are listening to. So tonight is episode 1 of my HPR + HIFF collab. The idea is to feature the music that some of my favorite local film makers are currently vibing.
First up in this short series is Alika Maikau. Alika is a writer and film maker from Kāneʻohe. His most recent film, "Molokaʻi Bound," showed as part of the sold-out Made In Hawaiʻi Shorts at HIFF last week. One of his other films, "Mauka to Makai," won the award for Best Short in the Made in Hawaiʻi category at last year's HIFF. His selections for tonight's show carry a theme that is mainly mellow and lo-fi. To quote Alika, his selections are "music I'm listening to while I'm developing my next film." You can try and get in the rush line for the next showing of the Made In Hawaiʻi Shorts on November 17th, as tickets have already sold-out for that showing as well.
