Media Arts Festival

The Media Arts program at Mid-Pacific School of the Arts present Reframe, an annual Media Arts Festival showcasing the best of youth-made media in Manoa Valley.  Reframe explores themes of formation and transformation through video, photography, animation, and performance.

The goal of our festival is to integrate learning and exhibition opportunities for our media students, so that they can grow as aspiring filmmakers, image makers, and digital artist.

During Reframe 2013, our students collaborated with 808 Urban and Pow Wow Hawaii to create a collaborative, site-base body of work about Kakaako.  Our festival concluded with an exhibition at Limb that featured a collection of photography and video-base work.  The film showcase winners were selected by guest judges:  John Prime (808 Urban), Jasper Wong (Pow Wow Hawaii), Jacquline Davy (Limb Workshop), and our audience for the Audience Choice Award.

During the inaugural festival (Reframe 2012), students lead digital imaging workshops; participated in on-campus photo and digital art exhibitions; premiered films at an opening night screening event with outdoor A/V projections and performances; and the festival culminated with a gallery show at Ong King Art Center.

All events are free and open to the public.
