CINEMA HILO was founded by KOZMO MIMZI in 2007.

Inspired by each other and the resources available. Come to teach, learn, watch, listen, create and share.

Our weekly cinema workshops are free and fueled by the inspiration to learn and share OUR COLLETIVE PERSPECTIVES. 


"The Best Camera Is The One You Have With You" is often said by many visual enthusiasts & we believe it to be true. Bring your phone/camera/tablet/computer/etc and see the potential of what you already have.


Starting in 2007- KOZMO MIMZI held weekly classes at the EAST HAWAII CULTURAL CENTER where the students reviewed videos, shared their projects and created an atmosphere for collaboration and spontaneous conceptualization. We thrive in the moment of inspiration and pursue to capture the beauty that surrounds us. Join us and share what you have learned.
