Louis Vuitton Hawaii Presents Hawaii International Film Festival world premiere of the Hawaii-based film THE RIDE draws one of the largest crowds ever at the outdoor movie screening for Sunset on the Beach
. Sunset on the Beach
movies are located on beautiful Waikiki Beach with scenic Diamond Head in the background.
We estimated over 15,000 residents and visitors enjoyed the world premiere of the Hawaii-based feature film at the outdoor movie screening, said Malcolm Tom, Deputy Managing Director of the City and County of Honolulu. It was one of the largest crowds ever. There were so many people that the restaurant vendors sold out of food. We would like to say thank you to the Hawaii International Film Festival.
We knew when we first saw THE RIDE, that Sunset on the Beach
was the perfect location for its world premiere, said Chuck Boller, HIFF executive director. It is very satisfying to premiere Hawaii based films and this year we have a record 37 Hawaii feature films, documentaries and shorts shown at our outdoor movie screenings. We hope residents and visitors alike will take the opportunity to support our local filmmakers by seeing as many of the Hawaii based films as possible, they are all special".
