Hawaii Tourism reaping the benefits of the movie industry

Hawaii Tourism reaping the benefits of the movie industry

Supporting entrepreneurs in the film and media industry is an important part of building a creative innovation sector that generates job opportunities and supports tourism where the movie is created and produced.

Award-winning Hawaii filmmaker Vilsoni (“Vili”) Hereniko is teaming up with Australian producer Trish Lake (“Early Winter”), and New Zealand producer Catherine Fitzgerald (“The Orator”) to coproduce “Until the Dolphin Flies.” Production of the motion picture will begin in early 2018.


With a cast and crew that will stay within the islands as filming takes place, Hawaii’s tourism industry will also benefit when they dine out, stay in hotels, rent cars, and take tours.

And there’s the indirect benefit of having the islands of Hawaii forever captured as the backdrop for the film.
