After being won over by Lloyd Jones' novel 'Mister Pip', he began chasing the film rights, quickly joining forces with producer Robin Scholes. MR.

His intelligence and dedication will lead him to become an elite engineer, and creator of the state-of-the-art fighter bomber put into service just as Japan was contemplating war with the US.

Halekulani Golden Orchid Award nominated films The lines for each film may be the first thing you see when you come to an event (especially if there’s a mob). The crowd is separated into nine (or so) lines, right outside the theater lobby. Understanding the lines is critical to navigating HIFF. Three movies line up at a time. For each movie, there are three lines (3 movies x 3 lines = 9 lines). Each line will indicate which movie is queuing up and which ticket type should be standing in that line. (Check your ticket type carefully). Additionally, for shows that “sell out,” we form a “rush line” that offers a last chance opportunity to watch the film. HIFF volunteers will be stationed at several places around the floor to assist you. We'll have people at the information desk, at the rear of the lines, at the lobby door and at the theater doors.
