More about Hawai’i Doc Club: 

Alison Week is originally from Kailua-Kona, Hawai’i. She founded Hawai’i Doc Club to share her love of non-fiction storytelling with an emerging creative arts community across Hawai’i and empower them with the tools to tell their own stories through film. Join her as she walks you through what it takes to make a documentary film from a practical and creative producing perspective while you workshop your own short film, feature, or docu-series.
