Cinema Partners

In 2016 we were honored to introduce the Bank of Hawaii as our new presenting sponsor. For the past six years, BOH has been a key sponsor of HRFF and we are grateful for their continuous support of the LGBT community.

A big mahalo to Peter Ho, Chairman, President & CEO, and Donna Tanoue, Vice Chairman, for their leadership and passion in building upon our longstanding partnership.

BOH’s enduring commitment to the HRFF, along with that of the Honolulu Museum of Art and the Doris Duke Theatre, enabled us to bring you our longest-running film festival in all of our 27 years.

A special thank you to our festival founder, Jack Law, and premier sponsors: Aqua-Aston Hospitality, Hawaiian Airlines, Metro HNL, and Hula’s Bar and Lei Stand.
