The AlohaStream Film Festival celebrates independent and alternative content, focusing on feature films 40-120 minutes of any genre.

We highlight award worthy independent movies and screenplays on our website!

We focus on discovering and bringing to the world, not just the movie, but the journey the filmmakers undertook to create the project. Not only do we share the story, but we let the creators share the story behind the story.

We honor movies in a variety of ways as Official Selections, Finalists, and “Best of” in a variety of categories.

We also offer full-service distribution to select feature films.

Select features and shorts will be invited to participate in the online Spirit of Cinema Awards.

- The submitter must be directly involved (producer, director, screenwriter) with the project or legally authorized to represent the project submitted;
