The Regal Dole Cannery Stadium 18 will be buzzing with activity from March 31 to April 9 as the curtain rises on the 2017 Hawaii International Film Festival’s Spring Showcase presented by Halekulani. On tap for this 20th edition of the Spring Showcase will be 32 feature films from 12 countries, including nine from Japan — nearly all premieres — five Hawai‘i, one U.S. and one international.

“HIFF Spring Showcase has always been an opportunity for us to be on the forefront of the hottest film festival films and bring them to Hawaii,” stated Anderson Le, co-director of programming, in a HIFF press release. HIFF is known for its strong focus on Asian films, and this year’s showcase lives up to that reputation.
