We connect women in film with mentors and support for their creative projects and discuss critical issues and amplify marginalized voices shared through film screenings

An incubator for the development of 10 short film ideas into viable projects by the end of their time at the Lab. 

An annual gathering of wāhine filmmakers during the Hawaiʻi International Film Festival. Connect, collaborate, and corroborate women and girls' work in film.

Using a screening and discussion format, our gathering series invites women filmmakers and women involved in the film industry to discuss their work, share work-in-progress, exchange experience, share their expertise and personal reflections about the making of films and the workings of the industry.


The Women of Wonders Film Fest highlights and celebrates the lives and accomplishments of women around the world, and here in Hawai‘i. The film fest presents a selection of films directed by women, about women, for everybody.

Indie Lens Pop-Up is a neighborhood series that brings people together for film screenings and community-driven conversations.

Our post-production funding supports films that in a meaningful way through plot, character, theme, or setting benefit the Hawaiʻi Wāhine filmmaking community in a professional and economic capacity.
