Who determines what gets in?
`Ohina asks an all volunteer, independent board of industry related professionals to select the films that will be screened.
Are there any awards?
Getting in is the award! `Ohina is all about gathering and showcasing some of the best short films that Hawaii has to offer. No set categories! No special individual awards! Just the art form and the audience!
Who pays for `Ohina?
`Ohina is a non-profit organization with an all volunteer staff. `Ohina’s operational and marketing expenses to help continue our mission, to provide a venue for filmmakers to exhibit their films to the local community.
Why should I submit?
If you are a Hawaii filmmaker and have a deep appreciation and passion for making short films, then this is the venue for you! `Ohina’s program is set up so selected shorts will be screened multiple times in a day, all in one weekend.
