We all know the film industry and we all love film. We know that it pumps $300 million into the state's economy every year and creates thousands of well-paying jobs in the creative sector. On top of that, we know that it provides millions of dollars of free advertising for Hawai'i, advertising that we could not otherwise afford.

But what does it take to support this industry? How do we remain competitive on a global scale? How can we sustain and grow film for our Island state? Our state film commissioner will offer her insight and expertise on how to take Hawai'i to the billion dollar level. It's not just the POWER of the well-crafted, well-executed story that leads to success, it's efficiently managed tax credit and film permit programs. It's proper and effective levels of staffing and funding. It's providing the right kind of support for production and securing the right kind of support from government policy makers It's a community that understands and supports this industry.

Donne Dawson has spent more than 15 years building Hawai‘i’s film industry and being an advocate for Hawai‘i’s growing creative talent pool. During her tenure the film and digital media industry has generated nearly $4 billion for the state's economy. The Hawai‘i Film Office is responsible for facilitating all film, television and digital media production throughout the Hawaiian Islands.

Dawson’s office administers the consolidated statewide permitting system and the production tax credit program for film. Her office also manages the 7.5-acre Hawai‘i Film Studio at Diamond Head, home of Hawai‘i 5-0, now in its 7th season. During the time that Dawson has managed the state’s film office, she has provided a voice for the industry nationally and internationally; within state government and throughout our community.

She was instrumental in securing, implementing and managing the state’s first tax credit program, launched in 2006 during the industry’s most globally competitive climate and the state’s most economically challenging period. Dawson has also secured more than $14 million in capital improvement funds for much-needed renovations at the Hawai‘i Film Studio, the only state owned and operated studio in the country. Currently Dawson is working with a team of Hawaiian Media Makers to establish the first Native Hawaiian protocol guide for media making in the Hawaiian Islands.
