WELCOME TO THE 30TH ANNUAL HONOLULU RAINBOW FILM FESTIVAL (#HRFF30) presented by the Bank of Hawaii Foundation. The Honolulu Gay & Lesbian Cultural Foundation (HGLCF) and #HRFF30 Team are proud to celebrate 30 years of continuing to elevate and enhance the legacy of being one of the longest-running and beloved LGBTQ film festivals in the world.

Our Programming Committee reviewed over 143 feature and 204 short films to ensure our audiences see only the best of the best in LGBTQ film and entertainment at Doris Duke Theatre. We’re also excited to continue our partnership with the Asia Pacific Queer Film Festival Alliance with our APQFFA Shorts Showcase featuring short films from notable festivals, including AKS Minorities Film Festival, Taiwan International Queer Film Festival, Seoul Pride Film Festival, Queer Screen Sydney Mardi Gras Film Festival, Shanghai Pride Film Festival, and Rainbow Reel Tokyo.

In honor of our big 3-0 birthday, we have our most colorful and fierce delegates for you, Hawai‘i!
