FRIENDS OF

THE FESTIVAL

MAHALO NUI LOA!

The Pasifika Film Festival has a vision to be the platform that tells Pacific stories through film and documentary.

 

We are so thankful to be able to achieve this festival through the support of our Pacific communities, our ambassodors, volunteers, film community and helpful friends! 

VOLUNTEER WITH US

By engaging Pacific Islanders as volunteers in the production of the Film Festival, we provide an opportunity to gain familiarity with and experience in the world of film.

 

We hope that by doing so, we not only strengthen existing participation in and engagement to core culture, but also activate a desire in those who may have lost touch with their heritage to reconnect to the tradition and meaning of their ancestral history.
