Who We Are

Since June 7th, 1937, IATSE Mixed Local 665 has represented Hawai'i's premier technicians, artisans, and craftpersons in the entertainment industry. Our members work in every facet of entertainment including live events, motion picture and television production, and tradeshows & exhibitions.

International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees

The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, Moving Picture Technicians, Artists and Allied Crafts was founded in 1893 by stagehand representatives working in New York. They pledged to support each others’ efforts to establish fair wages and working conditions for generations to come.
Today, 130 years later, our members work in all forms of live events, motion picture and television production, tradeshows and exhibitions, television broadcasting, and concerts as well as the equipment and contractors that support all these areas of the entertainment industry. We represent virtually EVERYONE behind-the-scenes working. Ranging from the stage construction worker, motion picture animator, and even the theater usher.
