New Kilauea-centered film ‘Stoke’ premieres at Hawaii International Film Festival

Kilauea may be quiet for now, but the volcano is about to make its presence known at Hawaii’s largest film festival.

“Stoke,” a new film from Pahoa-based filmmakers Zoe Eisenberg and Phillips Payson, will make its world premiere Saturday at the Hawaii International Film Festival in Honolulu. Filmed throughout Hawaii Island, in places such as Pahoa, Alii Drive in Kailua-Kona, and the lava fields near the former town of Kalapana, the film is in the running for the festival’s Best Made in Hawaii Feature award.  Read more from West Hawaii Today
