Beckie STOCCHETTI is the Executive Director of the Hawai’i International Film Festival, a multi-island Festival and 41-year old non-profit organization that has earned the distinction of being the nation’s creative pipeline to the Pacific Islands and the primary source for the exhibition and discovery of API films and talent. At the helm of HIFF, Beckie has revitalized the organization, spotlighting emerging talent from Asia and the Pacific Islands, and bringing focus to local Hawai’i content and filmmakers through competition programs, cash awards, in-flight screenings on Hawaiian Airlines, content development, and new youth programs. She launched a Virtual Reality exhibit at HIFF that spotlights immersive new media works primarily from the Asia-Pacific region. Beckie has tripled the staff size at HIFF since taking over as Executive Director and more than doubled its economic impact to the state.

Having a focused career on developing independent creative talent, Beckie regularly speaks at national and international Festivals and conferences on supporting and evolving local film industries and spotlighting diverse voices through film.

Previously, Beckie lived and worked in Chicago as a filmmaker and held numerous industry positions including with Kartemquin Films documentary production company, launching a filmmaker-in-residence program with the City of Chicago Film Office, and spearheading a local digital media production fund with Chicago Filmmakers. Beckie has served on various Boards and dedicates her time to building investment in the independent film industry.
