HONOLULU - The state's longest running LGBTQ film festival hits a milestone this year. The Honolulu Rainbow Film Festival celebrates its 30th year in August. There will be 22 screenings, panels, workshops, and a Red Carpet Gala. 

One of the films features Hinaleimoana Wong-Kalu, who KITV4 Island News featured as a Remarkable Woman in May. (https://www.kitv.com/story/40527781/hawaiis-remarkable-women-hinaleimoana-kwai-kong-wong.) She is in Afterearth, about how four women understand motherhood through nature. 

Afterearth's story unfolds through a chant by Wong-Kalu, then moves onto a poem by Isabella Borgeson, a song by Kayla Briet, and a heartfelt reflection between Wan Ping Oshiro and her son Kit Yan.

The festival kicks off on August 8 and wraps up August 18. It is put on by the Honolulu Gay & Lesbian Cultural Foundation. More at HGLCF.org.
