The potential closure of Kapena Falls near downtown Honolulu to film crews will be among issues to be discussed in the Hawaii Film Office's free "Seminar Series: Protecting Hawaii's Locations" at 1 p.m. Thursday at the Hawaii State Art Museum.
Kapena Falls could be closed to filming because at least one Hawaiian-activist group considers the location sacred and worries of possible damage by production companies.
Thursday's round-table discussion will inform producers and location managers about the cultural and environmental issues to be considered when filming at various sites, and how the film office can help navigate permits, rules and regulations.
Speakers will include film office representatives Jackson Bauer (permit specialist) and Sandra Ichihara (film industry development specialist); Mawae Morton, project manager of Kamehameha Schools Land Assets Division/Endowment Group; Dan Quinn, administrator of the Division of State Parks, Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources; and location manager Jim Triplett. Donne Dawson, Hawaii state film commissioner, will moderate.
The discussion will be held in the multipurpose room. The art museum is at 250 S. Hotel St.
