PBS Hawaii is holding its first-ever HIKI NO Festival to share student-produced video stories on the big screen.
The festival is free and open to the public and features stories that aired on PBS Hawaii’s student news program, HIKI NO, and are nominated in this year’s HIKI NO Awards.
The public can also watch the nominated stories from Friday, August 29, through Thursday, September 4, at Consolidated Theatres – Pearlridge for a reduced ticket price. A portion of these proceeds will go toward supporting the HIKI NO learning initiative in Hawaii’s classrooms.
The winners of the HIKI NO Awards will be announced via live stream on Wednesday, September 17.
A panel of veteran local news professionals will determine the winners.
HIKI NO is Hawaii’s first statewide student news network, made up of 86 public, private and charter schools from across the islands. Click here to view past episodes or learn more about the program.
