The Academy for Creative Media (ACM) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa presents its 2016 ACM Awards Showcase Screenings and ACM Awards Ceremony. The public is invited to attend these events.

Film screenings

ACM students will debut their newest films during the ACM Awards Showcase Screenings on Friday, April 29, 5 p.m. and Saturday, April 30, 5 p.m. at the UH Mānoa Art Auditorium.

These films will include narratives, documentaries, experimentals and animations. 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.

Awards ceremony

On Friday, May 6, the ACM Awards Ceremony will be held in the Art Auditorium at 6 p.m., with a reception in the courtyard starting from 5 p.m. Awards will be presented for best drama, comedy, documentary, animation, audience favorite and more.

Brenda Ching and SAG/AFTRA will be honored with the ACM Friend Award for continuous support in nurturing ACM filmmakers.
