Garden Island Film Festival opens tonight

PUHI — Do you remember Domingo Los Banos who lived in Kekaha?

Stephanie Castillo, director of “Night Bird Song: The Incandescent Life of Thomas Chapin,” said Domingo’s life influenced her creation of the film that will open the second Garden Island Film Festival tonight at the Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas.

Castillo was among the guests participating in the Kauai Chamber of Commerce Business Before Hours Thursday at the Regency at Puakea retirement and assisted-living facility in Puhi.

“As part of the last year’s film festival, I showed a preview of this production,” Castillo said. “This year, the film will be premiered here on Kauai. It hasn’t been shown anywhere else.”

Castillo and the Garden Island Film Festival are featured in today’s TGIF.
