Film Offices of the Hawaiian Islands

The Film Offices of the Hawaiian Islands are five film commissions with one mission – dedicated to providing outstanding service to local, national and international industry clientele, the film offices work both individually and collectively to develop, support and facilitate all manner of productions in the Hawaiian Islands. 
Hawaii’s stunning locations, skilled crew base and competitive and broadly applied tax rebate program make the islands an inviting and production friendly location for commercials, new media, television and feature film production.
