East-West Film Journal

The East-West Film Journal (1986-1994) supported the Film Program at the Institute of Culture and Communication at the East-West Center. Together with the Hawaii International Film Festival and Film Symposium, this East-West Film Journal gave the scholarly work of the Film Program a broad public outlet. Films are works of art and means of communication; a medium for exploring and expressing humanities issues; reflections, often critical, of society; an important industry and a tool for creating and promoting national identity. Because film is the international genre par excellence of modern times, films enable us to study the unity and diversity of human creativity. Cinema has also attracted some of the greatest intellects of our time and the influence of the medium on our daily living and thinking is incalculable.
