2017 European Cinema Awards Gala at the Moana Surfrider

April 20, 2017

On March 31, 2017, the Moana Surfrider once again served as the perfectly poised backdrop to the 8th Annual Hawaii European Cinema Film Festival Awards Gala.

The gala celebrated European Cinema and honored renowned talent and artists that connect Hawaii with the cultures and storytelling of Europe.

The red carpet event, among one of the most highly anticipated social events of the year in Hawaii, is nothing short of fabulous.

The First Lady of Waikiki is decked out with a red carpet entrance on Kalakaua Avenue and her palatial colonial white columns are draped with the iconic Eurocinema banners – it’s truly a sight to see.

Attendees are spectacularly dressed in the latest fashions, photographer flash bulbs are popping away and onlookers eagerly gaze on hoping for a glimpse of the action.

For a single evening, the glitz and glamour of Hollywood makes its home on Waikiki beach.
