The UH Mānoa Academy for Creative Media (ACM) presents two nights of its 2017 Showcase Screenings on April 28 and 29, and Awards Ceremony on May 4.  All three events are free and open to the public.

ACM students will debut their newest films during the Showcase Screenings starting at 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, April 28 and 29, 2017, at the UH Mānoa Art Auditorium. The films will include narratives, documentaries, experimentals and animation. In many cases, this will be the first time an audience has seen these films, so anticipation is high. The films will be judged by the audience and ACM faculty.

Then, on Thursday, May 4, the ACM Awards Ceremony will be held in the Art Auditorium beginning at 6 p.m., with a reception in the courtyard starting at 5 p.m.  Awards will be presented for best drama, comedy, documentary, animation, audience favorite and more. Clips of winning films will be shown.

Said Daniel Boulos, associate professor and chair of ACM Mānoa, "We welcome everyone to come out and show support for local film and the talented students of ACM.  These three very special events wrap up our academic year and honor the best work of our student filmmakers, as well as other milestones of achievement."
