GET A JOB: Local Production's TWO Oahu Screenings THIS Weekend

Capped with pre-film concerts by Barefoot Natives (Friday) and Henry Kapono (Saturday), plus discussion with actors/director.

What you may not have known was that since its premiere at the Hawaii International Film Festival (HIFF) last October, it has garnered “Best Comedy” awards at film festivals that include Detroit and Ventura, as well as “Juror’s Choice” awards at Las Vegas and Marbella film festivals. And while it’s one thing for Pacific islanders to “get” island humor, it’s quite another to be recognized “off the rock,” as we say.
