Description

Businessman Jack Lawfounded the non-profit Honolulu Gay and Lesbian Cultural Foundation (HGLCF) in 1997 as an umbrella organization for the Adam Baran Honolulu Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, now known as the Honolulu Rainbow Film Festival (HRFF).

Today, the HGLCF is a self-supporting non-profit 501(c)3, whose main mission is to educate and raise awareness of the community-at-large about Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) culture, arts, and lifestyle. HGLCF also works toward instilling a sense of pride and respect among the members of the LGBT community, as well as to highlight the unique cosmopolitan ambiance of the city of Honolulu.

In its 27th continuous year, the HRFF is one of the longest-running and well-respected LGBT film festivals in the country. The festival has presented hundreds of documentaries, feature films, shorts and animations from around the world, with special consideration given to Hawai’i-based filmmakers. Films programmed at the HRFF have gone to win Peabody and Emmy awards. The HRFF has an excellent reputation in the film festival community and has been the venue for both U.S. and world premieres.
